Feminism in American Art History-WYETH FOUNDATION FOR AMERICAN ART SYMPOSIUM

A Virtual Symposium | December 4–11, 2020

This annual program supported by the Wyeth Foundation for American Art is Feminism in American Art History, a two-part symposium consisting of eight prerecorded lectures and a live panel discussion moderated by Steven Nelson, dean of the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts. The speakers—Kirsten Pai Buick, Aruna D’Souza, Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Lisa Farrington, Jessica Horton, Jenny Lin, Helen Molesworth, and Jennifer Van Horn—reveal the latest thinking in the history and historiography of feminism and gender in American art. The symposium is held in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Linda Nochlin’s landmark essay of 1971, “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” and in honor of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.


This symposium is organized by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts. The Trustees of the National Gallery of Art are grateful to the Wyeth Foundation for American Art for making this symposium possible.
