Feb. 25, 9-5pm, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA
This year’s Feminist Art Project day of panels organized by artists Audrey Chan and Elana Mann gauges the present and future of feminist artistic thought and practice. What are the stakes—and who are the stakeholders—of the feminist future? The day’s conversations will reflect the greater inclusivity of a contemporary feminist art that embraces a multiplicity of identities and philosophies.
Topics of discussion will include: feminist art educational models, the roles of men in feminist art, interventionist art strategies, radical queer art making, and feminism as a daily humanist practice. These panels will build upon a tradition of feminism in Los Angeles through new readings and modes of engagement with this vital movement. Speakers will share their perspectives as artists, educators, curators, art historians, filmmakers and writers who are invested in the feminist future.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. For more information and a full schedule of the day’s discussions, please visit: http://sharesandstakeholders.com.
