Eye Desire: Media Art after Feminism


ACLS Fellowship Program


Art History


This project is a theoretical and historical analysis of media art informed by feminism from 1990 to the present. Through case studies of exemplary artworks, exhibitions, and critical texts, it offers a historical account of this prevalent yet under-studied field of artistic production, and introduces a new critical framework for understanding its distinctive models of multisensory spectatorship. Ultimately, its theoretical model for assessing contemporary media art—screen-based art made with film, video, or digital technologies—invigorates interdisciplinary research on the impact of media technologies on human experience.
