Guerilla Warfare: Representing the Other in Contemporary Art Museums

Senior Capstone Experience by Casey Wolhar ’20

Submitted to the Department of Communication and Media Studies

Advised by Dr. Alicia Kozma

Description: Guerilla Warfare explores issues surrounding representation of women identifying and non-male artists within contemporary art museums. Through a literature review, I investigate disparity of representation, how this can be built on institutional bias and possible solutions such as curatorial intervention. I also offer a solution in practice by explaining the plans for a performance based exhibition featuring four women artists for Washington College’s Kohl Gallery. “
