Research: Does the female nude exploit women for male gratification?

This was a very thought-provoking exercise – I had seen nude paintings and statues in galleries before, but had never really questioned the gender roles behind them.

It was good to research contemporary women artists as I came across quite a number that I had not heard of before and I enjoyed researching their work.

For this exercise I came across an excellent research resource at the Brooklyn Museum, the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art: Feminist Art Base.

My thoughts on the exercise are here, with the photos removed for copyright purposes as usual: Research Female Nude No Pics
