At the Intersection of the Feminine, Feminism, and Abstraction:

The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

Summer/Fall Semester 2018, Research Paper #3

"Rosie the Riveter Feminine Style" digital collage by Anne Barnes.

"The fault lies not in our stars, our hormones, our menstrual cycles, or our empty internal spaces, but in our institutions and our education—education understood to include everything that happens to us from the moment we enter this world of meaningful symbols, signs, and signals."

--Linda Nochlin, Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?


For the final paper this semester I chose to take a dive into the crossroads between the feminine in art, feminism, and abstraction. And I tried to figure out whether they were all related to one another or not, and what if anything, they all had to do with my own creative practice.


To read my paper entitled At the Intersection of the Feminine, Feminism, and Abstraction: The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same click here or you can also access the file directly from my website annebarnesdesign.com and by going to the Portfolio/MFA Papers drop down tab at the top of the page and opening the PDF named Residency_1_2018_paper_3.pdf. .
