Feminist Art Observatory
a resource on feminist art
and women artists

FAO = 'for the attention of...'

those who wish to think again about
feminism in relation to contemporary art

Since 1996, this site has been collecting and listing feminist research on contemporary women artists (post-1970). This site is for anyone to use to research feminism's relationship to contemporary art.

Re-search books, anthologies, websites and exhibition catalogues

This resource is international in its focus, is updated regularly and lists around 5,000 items within and across the sections listed below.
The list begins with "bibliographic references"/things to read; then lists "n.paradoxa projects" from 'Feminist-Art-Topics' to 'Manifestos'; then organisations, groups and places to visit.

If you are only starting to research or think about feminism in relation to contemporary art, try joining n.paradoxa's MOOC (a free mass open online course).
