Women and the Practice of Sculpture since the 1880s
The main objective of this course is to develop a method of enquiry, research and writing, that focuses the vital contribution made by women sculptors in contemporary culture.
The course has been structured around themes. Starting from accepted categories of sculptural studies (the sculpted body, the monument), sociological and theoretical issues will be considered (the influence of art schools, the role of exhibition spaces, the language of art criticism, in the light of gender theories) essential to understanding the careers of women sculptors. Case studies will include Camille Claudel, Eva Hesse, Louise Bourgeois, Helen Chadwick, Mona Hartoum, Phyllida Barlow, Rose Garrard, Alison Wilding and some younger artists who are making their work on the fringe.
