ART, GENDER, AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

Panel Discussion: Saturday, May 6th, 2017
6:00 pm-7:30 pm
THE COOPER UNION,The Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, 41 Cooper Square (Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets), New York, NY 10003

Artists provoke and enlighten by giving voice to perspectives in our world that might otherwise remain unseen. Artistic investigations of contemporary attitudes and norms have been embedded in the forefront of movements for social justice, civil rights, and equity for marginalized voices throughout history. What roles do art and gender play in creating social justice locally and globally? What can we do to bring more marginalized women’s voices to the forefront where they can speak for themselves?

With Jessica Greer Morris, Hafizah Geter, and Giannina Braschi. Moderated by Ana Oliveira.
