    Bad Ass Women from Art History *SPECIAL EPISODE*: The Harlem Rennaisance

    Bad Ass Women from Art History *SPECIAL EPISODE*: The Harlem Rennaisance

    Welcome to another episode of Bad Ass Women from Art History.

    As I explain in the intro this is another ~special episode~ deviating us once again from the Art History timeline. However, I strongly feel and I'm sure you would all agree this is the best possible deviation!

    Why don't we know about the Harlem Renaissance? Some of us do, but most of us don't. This is a crucial point in African American history and Black culture particularly when it comes to the arts, creativity and cultural expression.

    Black culture has influenced, shaped and profoundly influenced the world we know today (as is consistently underrepresented and under acknowledged), in literature, music, art, fashion and beyond. A lot of which has stemmed from the Harlem Renaissance a pivotal time in Black history.

    So come hang out and learn something new!

    Reading list:
    Toni Morrison -- any and all of her work, but favourites include Jazz (particularly if you want to read a story based during the Harlem Rennaisance) and Sula.
    James Baldwin -- If Beale Street Could Talk (also made into a film!)
    Zora Neale Hurston
    Maya Angelou (duh)
    Richard Wright
    Roxanne Gay!!!
    Malcom X
    Martin Luther King Jr


    Watch:
    Dear White People (movie AND Tv series)
    Cadillac Records
    BlacKkKlansman
    Poetic Justice
    If Beale Street Could Talk
    Moonlight
    Get Out (amazing themes to unpack in this one)
    Bamboozled
    Pariah
    Straight Outta Compton

    Bad Ass Women from Art History *SPECIAL EPISODE*: Who are The Guerrilla Girls?

    Bad Ass Women from Art History *SPECIAL EPISODE*: Who are The Guerrilla Girls?

    Welcome to 5 minutes with Bad Ass women from Art History, a quarantine and social isolation (#Covid-19 lol) induced series. Launching off the back of a twitter series I created in 2014 but now in a much better podcast form!



    Women have been involved in the making of fine art throughout history. However, its no secret that their work, when compared with their male counterparts has been often obfuscated, overlooked and undervalued even being demoted to heavily gendered categories such as "arts and crafts" rather than fine art (massive EYE ROLL).



    Women in art have been faced with challenges due to gender biases in the mainstream fine art world. They have often encountered difficulties in training, travelling and trading their work, as well as gaining recognition. Beginning in the late 1960s and 1970s, feminist artists and art historians created a Feminist art movement that overtly addresses the role of women especially in the Western art world, how world art is perceived, evaluated or appropriated according to gender.



    Episode 0 or our Special Episode will be launching as a testimony to this very movement, showcasing the Bad Ass women who inspired me to create this series, also Josh, Josh inspired me too..



    The next episode, episode 1, will be starting from the beginning of Art History (Prehistoric) aaaall the way to contemporary and current era.

The World’s Best Filmmaker ,

Lovely platform for local artists to have a yarn!

I was lucky enough to be a guest on Gab’s topical podcast, Gab has a very chilled out approach to podcasting, it’s a relaxed conversation between friends, people, artists, makers, creators. A great podcast to listen to on the way to work, on your commute, walking the dog or wherever else you like to relax and have a chuckle or be confronted! I’m really loving listening to the other guests and it’s so great that Gab is building a community of local creatives in NSW, Australia to share their work. Definitely support her and tell yo friends!

Wasn’t a fan

Didn’t love the episode that I listened to, there wasn’t any flow to the conversation and I found their voices quite irritating
