Wednesday, January 24, 2018

The Other Side of the Picture (1998) tackles the question posed by art historian Linda Nochlin, “why have there been no great women artists?” It takes audiences behind the disheartening statistic that women account for only 8 percent of the National Gallery of Canada’s collection and into the homes and studios of great Canadian women artists such as Mary Pratt, Joyce Wieland, Jane Ash Poitras, and Landon Mackenzie. Considering the last two centuries of women’s art history, this film comments on why we are still missing “the other side of the picture.”
