Description

Feminist Stories, After the Dreams: A Cultural Retrospective of Sameness (mini-art collection) — Contemporary artists from the African Diaspora have adopted new ways of creating art by using new media technologies and eludes generalized description. An anonymous South African contemporary artist uploaded work to the public domain for the world to download, print, and reuse. The mini-art collection features eight African women in different roles that deal with stages of womanhood, love, independence, and kinship. Visually, the paintings in the collection have bright and alluring colors, and bare striking features. Each piece displays its own feminist story, up for different interpretations, and will make for great discussions in art circles, academia, and libraries.
