The Female Gaze

The practitioners featured here work in and around issues that define and affect what it means to be a woman. In this journey, learn about Suzanne Lacy's work on social practice and community interaction as "feminist to the core" then continue to Ishiuchi Miyako’s photographic forays into areas of Yokosuka deemed unsafe for women; to Helène Aylon’s “midwifing” and “birthing” of painted pieces; to Tomoko Sawada’s photo investigations of Japanese womanhood and girls’ schools; and Judy Chicago’s dangerous female content that revolutionized the art world in the 1960s and 1970s.
