The Last Supper of Dumas, Edelson & Ohlson Wallin


January 2014 saw the publication of a new issue of n.paradoxa, the international feminist art journal.

For this theme issue on Religion, I wrote an article about the role of gender in the use of the Last Supper motive by the contemporary artists Marlene Dumas, Mary Beth Edelson and Elisbeth Ohlson Wallin.

To read the editorial, see the table of contents, and purchase options – online and in print – go to the website of n.paradoxa!

n.paradoxa is the only international feminist art journal in the world, specializing in the visual arts and feminist theory (post 1970). The journal title means: n = noun; para = beyond; doxa = taught or accepted opinion.
