DESCRIPTION

The exhibition and symposium - A Studio of Their Own: The Legacy of the Fresno Feminist Experiment - documents the foundation of the nation’s first feminist art education program at Fresno State University in 1970, and its enduring legacy in contemporary art. Meeting off campus in a Studio of Their Own fifteen female students and instructor Judy Chicago helped pioneer key strategies of the early feminist art movement, including collaboration, the use of “female technologies” like costume, performance, and video, and early forms of media critique.
