This workshop will examine representations of the female body throughout art history, including religious and allegorical subjects, historic figures, anatomical subjects, and individuals in media and popular culture. How have framings of the female body changed over time and what threads have carried through different generations? Join artist and independent scholar Allison Hill-Edgar for this lecture and discussion workshop examining how issues of race, class, nation building, power, religion, health, and sexuality have affected the representation of women in both high art and popular culture.
