This essay discusses transnational feminism in contemporary art and Reilly talks about her experience curating the art exhibit "Global Feminisms: New Directions in Contemporary Art," which presented a selection of young to mid-career women artists from a variety of cultures. The essay examines transformations in feminist theory and contemporary art practice and talks about artists Patricia Piccinini, Dayanita Singh, and Catherine Opie. Reilly really focuses on challenging First World Feminism that assumes "sameness" among women. Instead, the show and essay acknowledge the differences in the woman's lives. " In other words, this all-women exhibition aimed to be inclusively transnational, evading restrictive boundaries as it questioned the continued privileging of masculinist cultural production from Europe and the United States within the art market, cultural institutions, and exhibition practices."

Thereafter, Robert asks the narrator to open his eyes look the drawing they created. Then, the narrator says that “My eyes were still closed. I was in my house. I knew that. But I didn’t feel like I was inside anything ‘It’s really something,’ I said” (42).
All that Montag wants is to make the community realize why books are important. How books can help us. Also, how books can make us feel some type of emotion.

When Montag realizes, Beatty is at his house, he stuffs the book under his pillow. After entering Montag’s house, Beatty gives Montag a lecture about a fireman system and why it is the way it is. At the end of his lecture, Beatty advises Montag that “Every fireman gets an itch. What do the books say, he wonders. Montag, take my word for it, the books say nothing” (Bradbury 59).
Looking into her biography, Artemisia Gentileschi was a well-known figure and one of the first female artists to pursue a profession on the same terms as men. Her work is often overshadowed by the contradictory narratives that contained her. Gentileschi painted in the same style of Caravaggio, revealing her art with powerful stage lighting to intensify effects of emotional drama. I read that her figures were mostly heroic women drawn from history, and religious subject matter, including Cleopatra, Lucretia, and Mary Magdalene, often depicted nude and desirous. Going through all of her paintings, there is one that I am intrigued by called Corsica and the Satyr.
I have always perceived the beauty behind my identify struggle just as others have as well. I am rich in culture because I am of two. The hybridity of both cultures presented a sensation of empowerment while it also has created a division within myself.

In this essay, I’m going to discuss the gender roles in the paintings of Dalí, in the film “Un Chien Andalou” by Buñuel and the poems of Federico García Lorca. Gender roles play a huge part within these works. All three of these artists had the ability to showcase something beautiful or majestic through disturbing and off putting imagery. This is what made their work so distinctive compared to many other artists during the surrealist period. The main things all of these artists have in common are their feelings and expressions of gender roles.
Throughout the story Bobby slowly understands his role as a young adult. The wall is a symbol of Bobby and him coming of age. " And alI wanted to do is paint a wall" (Johnson page 98). Bobby takes out his juice and starts to paint. He starts to see himself as a pale ghost in the background.
Each painting is unique, with a tactile presence, which reveals the hand of the artist. The image, which was the product of a split second drive by photo, now takes on substance through both the physicality of the paint, and through the contemplation of place and time. In this, the paintings come to represent more of a testament to her experience than the photographs. In the essay An Art That Eats Its Own Head – Painting in the Age of Images Barry Schwabgley acknowledges photographs place in contemporary art while also confirming the significance of painting, “ Although it was
“Where are you from?” is a common question people ask if you look ethnically mysterious. Being a different race with unique facial features shows you are, not what they call in the United States “American”. Evelyn Alsultany was born and raised in New York City. Her ethnicity is Arab from her father's side and Cuban from her mother's side. She describes the social issue, she confronts the way people approach her creating assumptions, consequently making her feel excluded from her cultural background.

Selena was often known as the the Queen of Tejano music. Making herself well known in a genre of music dominated mostly by men. She was arguably one of the most successful women singers to live.
I agree with Drake ’s quote, specifically the notion of how Nostalgia de la Luz is counter- atomist due to how it brings together the worlds of science and human affairs. The film’s director and narrator, Patricio Guzman, does a fantastic job showing the connection between astronomy and the women searching the Atacama desert for their loved ones who unfortunately were murdered during Pinochet’s brutal reign as dictator. Previously to watching the documentary, I was an avid and amateur fan of astronomy, frequently going to parks to catch a better glimpse of the skies and being an avid participant in my school’s Astronomy and Rocket Science Club. However, I was never aware of the notion that every time we look at the sky, and literally the “past”,
