Podcast 46 Painting 12: The Impact of Art by Women

New Voices in Painting

Although the sixties is usually thought of as the decade of Civil Rights, the final expression of equality was the Women’s Movement of the seventies. The art world, which had attempted to ignore the prevailing political events was suddenly confronted with a large and unhappy constituency, artists who had been excluded from the art world on the basis of gender and color. Feminist art and art by women and the art of people of color challenged the exclusionary territory of painting, which had been an “all boys’ club” for decades. The result of the influx of new ideas and new points of view would be more open field for new possibilities in painting.
