Feminism After the Waves

Contributing to the two day discussion at MOMA, New York the invitation of Judith Rodenbeck.

The resurgence over the past five years of expressly feminist activity in the art world suggests the urgent need to think about feminism not simply as a relic of a historical past but as a vital contemporary and political force. Convened by Judith Rodenbeck (Sarah Lawrence College) and Connie Butler (The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings, The Museum of Modern Art), this public conversation explores the state of feminist theory and the status of women within the various disciplines that together constitute the discourses of contemporary art. The event is supported by the Clark’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant. Participants include: Lauren Berlant, University of Chicago; Sabine Breitwieser, Museum of Modern Art; Connie Butler, Museum of Modern Art; Silvia Kolbowski, artist; Marysia Lewandowska, artist; Jaleh Mansoor, University of British Columbia; Gabi Ngcobo, Center for Historical Reenactments; Senam Okudzeto, artist; Jeanine Oleson, artist; Griselda Pollock, University of Leeds; Gabriela Rangel, Americas Society; and Judith Rodenbeck, Sarah Lawrence College.
