Panel Discussions: Women, Work, Role-Playing and Contemporary Practices
April 29, 2012; 2:00 p.m.
Join us for two panel discussions in conjunction with State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970:
Women, Work, Role-Playing
Feminist pioneers merged gender politics with Conceptual practices in performances sited in both public and domestic settings. Panelists will consider how feminist artists in the 1970s practiced, embodied, and performed various types of gendered labor. With artists Lynn Hershman, Suzanne Lacy, and Bonnie Sherk, and art historian Moira Roth. Chaired by Julia Bryan-Wilson, State of Mind catalog essayist and UC Berkeley associate professor of art history.
Artists Anne Walsh and Mario Garcia Torres, curators Jens Hoffmann and Rudolf Frieling, and exhibition curators Constance M. Lewallen and Karen Moss explore the influence of the radical art of the late 1960s and early 1970s on contemporary art practices.
