Stop Telling Women to Smile: Challenging Gender Oppression Through Street Art

April 30, 2016
12:00pm  -  12:15pm
High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

This discussion will be lead by artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. Fazlalizadeh uses women to tell their stories and experiences through portraiture. In this discussion, Fazlalizadeh will discuss her intent in using her work to challenge everyday sexism and the specific process for creating that work. The lecture will point out the importance of reflecting intersecting identities when depicting the narratives of women, and the ways that public art can be used as a tool for reclaiming public space for women.
