Join us on Sunday March 29th, 1:00 P.M. for a dialogue about art, identity and language.
This is the first in a series of talks that will examine the language of living as a [fill in the blank] woman and being a woman artist – without language, we are invisible.
Inspired by the past and looking forward, we are challenging the semiotics of the patriarchal clichés while looking into uncharted meaning of Po-Po Feminine today.
From Giorgione’s depiction of “The Portrait of an Old Women” (1508-1510) via the “Sexual Personae” to Cindy Sherman’s constructions of contemporary identity or Grace Cole’s carbon pencil drawing of a portrait of artist Claire Prussian, we will be looking into the answers for our query.
Searching for an adequate language, already visible in visual depictions of women by women artists and witnessing the changing dynamic of female power within Western culture and art. We hope for your participation and input.
Hosted by: Snezana Saraswati Petrovic and Deborah Lambert
Panelists include: Moderated by art historian, critic and curator, Betty Ann Brown; artist and curator Cheryl Bookout; art historian and writer Karen Schifman; new media artist and art historian Kristine Schomaker; and academic, curator and artists Snezana Saraswati Petrovic and Deborah Lambert.
