Rebelle. Art & Feminism

REBELLE showcases forty years of femi­nist art history. While the topic of art and femi­nism has both its champions and its critics, all agree on one thing: femi­nism has permanently changed the artistic landscape. REBELLE. Art & Femi­nism provides an exten­sive survey of the work of eithy-eight female artists. 
The REBELLE exhibition, organized by the Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem (NL), juxtaposed works by different gene­rations of artists. Displaying pioneers and contem­porary female artists side-by-side, and intermingling works and artists.
The REBELLE cata­logue offers a retro­spective, and somet­imes highly personal, look at the Dutch women's art movement, and pays particular attention, among other things, to the role of the Women in the Visual Arts Foundation, the ground-breaking "Femi­nisti­sche kunst internatio­naal" exhibitions that took place in 1978 and 1979, Dutch female art networks and the role of female artists in artists' initiatives.
