Up-Close and Personal: Contemporary Women Artists
Tuesday, October 15, 2013, 11:30 a.m.
The Kirk Varnedoe 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 work 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.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
