TOP REVIEWS FROM SEXING THE CANVAS: ART AND GENDER
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.
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.
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.
This was a wonderful course which gave me a new perspective when I view art and gave me new insights on artists and their works.
