Reception to follow.
This event lends impetus to contemporary feminist initiatives in the arts while contributing to the analysis of both the feminist rhetoric and the art circulating currently within art-world and academic contexts. We have invited art historians, artists, curators, critics, and art administrators who actively participate in the expansion of feminist cultural arenas to engage in conversation with CCA students and faculty members, as well as members of the wider community, about the influx of institutional interest in feminism. We ask, “Why now? What are the political stakes? Where are the silences and blind spots? Where do we go from here?” We aim to create a space for public dialog and intergenerational exchange about contemporary visual culture that engages with feminist issues, provokes feminist analysis, and raises social consciousness.
