Over the last year, a series of exhibitions and cultural initiatives in New York and elsewhere have sought to reconsider the feminist legacy in contemporary art and the new directions it has inspired in the work of emerging artists and collectives. This roundtable discussion with artists, critics, and historians will include a critical review and analysis of such events. It will also include an attempt to envision the steps to follow in the collective efforts to write recent feminist art history and implement the lessons learned from these initiatives. Participants include Janine Antoni, artist; Aruna D'Souza, Assistant Professor of Art History and Women's Studies, Binghamton University; Sharon Hayes, artist; and Molly Nesbit, Professor of Art History, Vassar College, contributing editor, Artforum, and (with Hans Ulrich Obrist and Rirkrit Tiravanija) organizer of the ongoing project Utopia Stations. Moderated by Connie Butler, The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings, The Museum of Modern Art.
