The Longest Revolution: Defining Feminist Social Practice

May 1, 2016
1:20pm  -  1:35pm
High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

This ten-minute program is an introduction by Neysa Page-Lieberman and Melissa Potter to a multi-year research project that seeks to define feminist social practice and use this knowledge to produce an exhibition and publication, entitled The Longest Revolution. The project is the first of its kind to reposition feminism at the center of contemporary socially engaged art practice. The upcoming exhibition, including installations, interventions, performance and a catalog with new scholarship, argues that feminist influence remains a driving force in socially-engaged art. Through an introduction to the project, the curators hope to inspire discussion, collaboration and program development with artists, curators, cultural workers, institutions and scholars.
