Third Wave Feminisms – Faith Wilding

Artist Faith Wilding describes her recent work with cyberfeminist groups the Old Boys’ Network and subRosa, which developed out of the desire to harness the Internet as a site of agency. Her work has also dealt with the intersection of bio-technology and women’s bodies and health. As a key participant in the Feminist Art Program (at CSU Fresno and CalArts) and the Feminist Art Movement in the 1970s, Wilding also brought attention to the habit of dividing women into fixed chronological generations, which has deepened the age-bias of feminist dialogues.

Faith Wilding spoke on the panel “Third Wave Feminisms” at Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions: 2007 CalArts Feminist Art Symposium, a student-organized project that took place at CalArts on March 10, 2007.
