The Feminist Art Project is now accepting proposals for the 2025 Day of Panels in NYC. The Day of Panels will take place on Saturday, February 15, 2025 at the Hilton Midtown, NYC (in-person).
TOPIC
SCIENCE AND ART: AN EXPANSIVE FEMINIST VIEW OF THE BODY, THE MIND, AND THE PHYSICAL WORLD
Chair: Anonda Bell (Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey)

This Day of Panels is dedicated to feminist artists utilizing science-based art making techniques, materials, and concepts, to explore ideas about humanity. Sci-artists have explored the physical sciences in topics such as health and disease, motherhood, robotics, technology, and AI, as well as the social sciences with psychological topics including the women’s temperament, and hysteria. Sci-artists have examined how humans exist within the greater environment, exploring eco-art practices, and imagining the natural world as a site for both resistance and inspiration. Feminist sci-artists have cross-examined stereotypical ideas about gendered sensibilities of care and nurturing, whether within the family, cultural and societal realms, and the exploration of the body as a representation of humanity and identity, including the dissection of tropes that accompany it. The connection between art and science is not strictly one of art being subjugated as a tool to merely illustrate scientific concepts (didactic representation of data). In this important Day of Panels, artists will demonstrate how art may be used to visualize the unseen, wrangle with the philosophy of science, and how art may be used to explore and communicate transcendent ideas which may defy more conventional forms of articulation.

The Feminist Art Project seeks proposals for presentations that investigate these topics. Please include images that may be considered with your paper.
*Participants should be available to attend the CAA conference in-person NYC in February.*

Please submit the following to tfap@nationalwca.org by July 31, 2024:
