Art and feminisms

These four episodes address the connections between art and feminisms. After exhibition such as "elles@centrepompidou", "Women in Abstraction" or "Georgia O'Keeffe" honouring women artists at the Museum, the issue of women’s role in art and the ability of art to overturn traditions and ways of thinking is more relevant than ever.
