Filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson traces the largely ignored history of women in art in a new documentary and interactive WIKI community—and aims to fill in the gaps
Why is it that even art enthusiasts haven’t heard of more female artists? And why do our most respected museums fill the majority of their walls with the works of men—despite all of the wonderful works by women? These are the questions Lynn Hershman Leeson aims to answer in her new documentary !W.A.R.: Women Art Revolution and online, community-supported WIKI database RAW/WAR.
QUT Precints, IHBI and Science week 2010 brings to you Linear Progression; an exhibition showcasing creativity in science. Exploring the inherently aesthetic qualities of scientific images, the exhibition seeks to encourage scientists to consider their work, lab or self in a creative way.
We invite you to participate by submitting work in the form of a digital moving or static image produced as a result of your scientific work, representations of your lab space or yourself . Submissions need to be high quality and visually rich, inspired by the idea of Linear Progression, which could be shown either in one image or through a series of images that engage with each other.
We are unstoppable for we are fueled with an incredible urge to embrace the pleasure provided by difference, exchange and liberation. Our actions today are charged with an energy that is animated by the rise of change and a movement that is simply irresistible.
For its upcoming fourth edition, Montreal-based festival Artivistic is going sexy. From October 15 to 17, 2009, we invite participants to discuss, question, and imagine the proxemics of sexuality, technology and politics.

The panel [Prologue]: Transitional Geographies / Feminist Mapping explores the cultural and political impact of European enlargement on feminist art and discourse: feminist participation in the cultural, economic, technological and structural spheres of a changing Europe remains a challenge. This panel aims to map out the crucial issues of how and where feminism remains a radical innovator in art, technology and society and to make public contemporary feminist art and discourse. The panelists - media artists, theorists and sociologists - are invited to reflect on the impact of shifting European borders and interests. This is extended to how feminist work addresses these changes.
