The emergence of feminism in the late twentieth century saw a critical re-appraisal of conventional modernist approaches to theory and practice in the visual arts. Concomitantly, postmodernism posited the “death of the author” and made more implicit the viewer‟s role in the generation of art. While much subsequent scholarship has been devoted to understandings of women‟s artistic practices and their placement within the art historical canon, and some attention has been paid to the question of collaborative authorship, especially in the field of literary studies, there has been little focus on the dynamics of collaboration when theory meets practice.
