WARM Journal Volume 1 Issue 1
The main articles of this issue concern Julia Barkley’s trip to China, Taiwan, and Japan, an interview with Sally Brown, an art instructor in the Twin Cities, and a review of the Women’s Art Weekend by Roseanne Sullivan. Barkley’s travelogue, although it contains language dated by modern standards, is an insightful exposé of what life was like for female artists in East Asia at the start of the 1980s. Brown’s interview provides a window into the development of women’s artistry in the 1960s. The Women’s Art Weekend documented women speaking about their struggles against racism and sexism at MCAD, and the empowerment they felt connecting with each other in an intersectional space. Also included in the issue were submissions of artistry with descriptions from members of WARM.
