NAMING NAMES: Feminist Revisionism & Socially Engaged Art Criticism

April 30, 2016
5:00pm  -  6:30pm
Lecture Hall — Level 1

Beginning with the political stakes and patriarchal mandate of feminist revisionism, Melinda Guillen will focus on work by artist Suzanne Lacy and other key figures including Grant Kester and Miwon Kwon in order to move into an in-depth discussion of how feminism, as a broader social movement and its historical contributions such as “Consciousness-Raising” or “CR” sessions remain peripheral in social practice discourse. The session will conclude with a facilitated discussion on possibilities, contradictions and actions toward a feminist envisioning of social practice.
