A New Era:  Art, Activism and Abortion in Post Roe America

TFAP@CAA Day of Panels 2024

Hilton Chicago – 3rd Floor – Waldorf Room

A New Era:  Art, Activism and Abortion in Post Roe America

Symposium Chair: Luciana McClure, Southern Connecticut State University

In 2022, Dobbs v. Jackson overturned the right to abortion in the U.S., undermining bodily autonomy and privacy. The Feminist Art Project (TFAP) looks at the way praxis as a feminist pedagogical project has changed and been transformed post Roe V. Wade. Artists have returned to the question of the role of feminist art and practice in times of crisis and violence, particularly around issues of bodily autonomy. As a result, we have seen a rise of collective solidarity between cis, queer and trans women artists and collectives leading to the surge of a new wave of feminism.

TFAP@CAA Day of Panels looks at feminist collective projects that remind us that the personal is political and that feminism is intersectional. TFAP will look critically at how artists, scholars and organizers respond to this attack on human rights and the patriarchal rhetoric about abortion and its relationship to bodily autonomy.
