TOP REVIEWS FROM SEXING THE CANVAS: ART AND GENDER
I'm really enthused with the lesson cause I feel I had a general view before about this subject and now I m approaching the core. It;s been an issue that I was thinking a lot the last 2 years.
The gradual depiction of gender since conventions were flouted and refinements textured was portrayed brilliantly from the pastoral paintings to Indigent 21st century works.
Very interesting course. Gives you insights on how gender played an important role in the arts. Also how to differentiate and read work on sexuality and gender.
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.
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.
Thank you so much for allowing me the privilege to be a part of this learning experience. I t's the first thing I do, while having my morning tea.
It is an great course with an amazing content!\n\nThe only problem is that sometimes it gets extremely monotonous =/
Great course! It has changed the way I view art. The lecturers make complex material accessible and interesting.
