“Death-Defying Art” in The Future is History: Feminist Legacies in Contemporary Art

Thursday, March 27, 2014, 7 p.m. at the Brooklyn Museum.

I will be speaking on a panel organized by A.I.R. Gallery and the Institute for Women and Art at Rutgers:

Now in its sixth year, the Dialogues in the Visual Arts series considers the most current critical issues and concerns for women artists, and celebrates Women in the Arts during National Women’s History Month.

Organized by A.I.R. Gallery and the Institute for Women and Art at Rutgers, this panel offers an intergenerational dialogue on the continuing impact of feminist history on contemporary art, as well as efforts to preserve the legacies of feminist artists and spaces in New York City. Considering what legacy is and why we should care about it, the panel will also address how imaginings for feminist lives and practices might coalesce in the future.
