The history of feminist art, as presented in Western museums and classrooms, tends to be dominated by work produced in metropolitan centers like Paris and New York. If we ground our investigations of feminist art in locations like Shanghai or Mumbai, what networks and affiliations emerge? How do women artists in Asia draw on and depart from traditions of feminist art in the West? How do they carve art worlds—systems of commission, transmission, production, and reception—that do not always circuit through the Global North?
