Tamara Kostianovsky

Tuesday, September 24, 2013, 1:30 p.m.

Contemporary Galleries, second floor

In the past few decades, a group of outstanding women artists established a particular art language based on their own experiences of gender and identity. Join a discussion that closely examines the works of Adrian Piper, Mona Hatoum, Kiki Smith, and Rachel Whiteread as they challenge accepted notions of life and death, while reflecting on the vulnerability of the human body.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
