Viable or Merely Possible? A Dialogue on Feminism's Radical Curatorial Project

Angela Dimitrakaki, Amelia Jones

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


Angela Dimitrakaki and Amelia Jones consider, in dialogical form, feminism's incorporation into the art institutions of contemporary capitalism. Their discussion makes mention of the developing art paradigms that clash with the museum's commitment to display, the 'silence' following the spate of feminist shows in 2007 and the need to draw a distinction between the possibility and viability (in specific historical conditions) of such a feminist curatorial project. The issue of why art history currently turns to the figure of the curator is also briefly addressed.
