JOAN

JONAS

Joan Jonas, a long time feminist activist and artist, creates videos, installations, sculptures, and drawings.

 

Her work disrupts the traditional perspective, engaging the audience in a way that provokes critical self awareness. From her earlier pieces in the 1960’s to now, her work challenges gender identity and roles, exploring the line between the subjective and objective gaze.
