Series: Femspec Articles. Price: $15.00 USD. Words: 4,140. Language: English. Published: April 17, 2015 by Femspec Journal. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Feminism & Feminist Theory, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Art history
Mexico provides a surreal surrounding for painters to experience new visions. Tichenor's artistic conceptions are not European. The artist makes an analogy about past practices of shamans and unexplainable phenomena in her art work. Her artwork glows in a radiating way that is un-natural. Tichenor's revealing artwork lets us see ordinary human beings unmasked.

La Carte de Tendre or the Map of the country of Tenderness can be viewed as a precursor of many board games, and, one might also claim that it foreshadows certain contemporary computer games. However, I see it more as a map of Mlle. De Scudery’s desire, and of the emotional geography of the territory of her political ambition and her sexual imagination.

The line between food enthusiasts and food snobs can be a thin one, and when, "It's easier!", "It's cheaper!", etc. drown out your insistence that the intersecting oppressions of disability, poverty, racism and fat-phobia play a part, then that line has been crossed. Food Snobbery, an extended essay by Philippa Willitts, takes an intersectional approach to critically addressing these issues.
