Political Gestures: The Artful Protest of Artworks?

Dana Schutz's painting of Emmett Till, Open Casket (2016), has become a focal point for speaking about cultural property, black trauma as spectacle, white privilege and gender, to touch a few points. For some of the activists, rather than simiply calling to destroy the painting or organizing protests, they stand in front of it so that one must look at them before one is able to look at the controversial painting. They are protesting by using artful methods. In this talk we'll discuss ideas about artful protest.

(RE)Present 2017: What do we want from Feminism and how can we achieve it? How have things changed? Continuing in the tradition of the New York Feminist Art Institute, NYFAI (1979-1990), http://www.nyfai.org .
An event of The Feminist Art Project.
