“Reading Women” by Carrie Schneider is a photographic exhibit that features women studying texts authored by women. Video accompaniment plays in a four-hour loop next to the pieces.
“Page Turners” draws from several different art sources, including books and prints
and explores how literate women asserted power and caused controversy from the 16th to 20th centuries
“Bijinga” showcases Japanese woodblocks that portray diverse and non-traditional (for westerners, at least) concepts of beauty in images of “bijin” or “beautiful women” over time.
“Joan of Arc” is an exhibit drawing from a litany of sources to celebrate the 50th
anniversary of the reconstruction of Marquette’s own St. Joan of Arc Chapel. Joan of Arc’s cultural impact in artwork is demonstrated throughout history using multiple styles of painting.
