Art Practice, Activism, and Pedagogy: Some Feminist Views

Conference: Art Practice, Activism, and Pedagogy: Some Feminist Views
April 5, 2012 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

In Art Practice, Activism, and Pedagogy, women artists who have embraced feminism in their art and social practice speak about its impact on their careers, the supportive communities it has created, and their current work. As artists engaged in individual and social practice and direct political activism, they discuss what it means to be a feminist artist today in the context of diverse forms of political engagement.
The conference is organized by Parsons Fine Arts faculty member Mira Schor, a painter and noted writer on feminist art and painting in a postmedium culture.
