Lauren Elkin & Vanessa Peterson: Art MonstersWednesday 19 July 2023, 7 p.m. · 56 minutes
For decades, feminist artists have confronted the problem of how to tell the truth about their experiences as bodies. Queer bodies, sick bodies, racialised bodies, female bodies, what is their language, what are the materials we need to transcribe it?
Exploring the ways in which feminist artists have taken up this challenge, Lauren Elkin's Art Monsters is a landmark intervention in how we think about art and the body, calling attention to a radical heritage of feminist work that not only reacts against patriarchy but redefines its own aesthetic aims.
Elkin was in conversation with Vanessa Peterson, Associate Editor, frieze magazine.
