visual thesis

During the last year of the Bachelor’s Degree, we were asked to write a thesis on a topic of our choice. Being equality and women rights a very dear subject matter to me, I decided to write about the influence of woman artists throughout the years, mainly focusing on the feminist art revolution that started around the 70s in America and spread all over the world. When asked to develop a visual representation of the written thesis, I was inspired by Linda Nochlin’s essays and the Guerrilla Girls posters. Having studied Art History ever since High School, I was taught that for every movement there were main pioneers who embodied the key elements of the art period. Unfortunately almost none of the names were of women artists, even though they too had a big influence in the art evolution. This poster is therefore an homage to 117 women artists of all movements, races and backgrounds, who have been of great impact in the art revolution and who, unfortunately have often been overshadowed by more recognized male artists. The 117 works blend into one of the biggest paintings of all time, Botticelli’s Venere, to enhance the concept of overshadowing. Metaphorically speaking the poster is an invite for people to stop focusing on the bigger picture and to look deeper into the History of Art and to discover other influencial works and names besides the ones represented in the biggest museums and galleries of the world.
