Description - Differencing the Canon by Griselda Pollock

Is the canon of art history a sacred collection of the best paintings by the greatest masters, or a construct turning its contents into products of mastery, and defining culture and creativity as essentially European and masculine? The question of the traditional, patriarchal canon, of whether it should be rejected, replaced or reformed, is a debate at the centre of feminist art history. In Differencing the Canon , Griselda Pollock examines the tenacity of the canon's appeal, and explores both the fantasies and desires served by traditional heroic narratives in art history, and those which drive feminist criticism to oppose them Using experimental formats and different voices, Differencing the Canon goes beyond the academic canon to get closer to the grain of the feminist voice, using difference as a dynamic force to open up the possibilities for reading complex visual art.
