TOP REVIEWS FROM SEXING THE CANVAS: ART AND GENDER
Good course. Coming from a traditional art historical context/content. Which is still a very valuable methodology in this age of "Visual Culture"! Thank you.
Very interesting and complete -a great window into several art galleries (especially now, during the context of COVID-19!), styles, personalities and iconic works of art.
Very interesting content and insights. I would have liked a bit more of an intro on gender theory and concepts relating to art before jumping into the artwork.
Fantastic! A great range of images and artists have been selected for study, and the concepts are fascinating.
