This talk reflects on writing art histories of togetherness. Drawing on my recent book Women Artists Together: Art in the Age of Women’s Liberation (Yale University Press, 2023) and other work, I propose togetherness as a model to think about the politics of art beyond identity, to understand difference, but also solidarity, as well as a means to deal with difficulty in the present.
