Description: 

Panel discussion entitled "The 1975 Art World: The Women in It", held at New York University's Loeb Student Center in conjunction with the Fine Arts Museum of the Women's Interart Center as part of a series of special events to salute "1975: Women and Art", on Wednesday, May 7th, 1975 at 7pm. Discussion is moderated by artist Alice Baber and the panel includes Howardena Pindell, artist and curator of prints at Museum of Modern Art; Isabel Bishop, artist; Mary Garrard, art historian at American University; and Judith Van Baron, director of the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Van Baron discusses how her museum is helping to correct the paucity of exhibitions of women artists. Garrard illustrates the concerns of the Women's Caucus of the College Art Association. Bishop describes her disillusionment at Georgia O'Keeffe being the only female artist listed in an early 20th-century American art catalog but also that she doesn't notice any discrimination against female artists in contemporary exhibitions. Pindell talks about her outsider status as a black woman artist. Garrard talks about the art of Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi and how her life experiences informed her artwork. Van Baron talks about how male art historians have dictated the male-centered discourse of art history. Panelists discuss the notion of "prettiness" as a condition of art made by women and the gendering of artistic approaches.
