Feminist Craft of Care for Times of Crisis
May 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm PDTFree
How have women artists’ labours affected by the durational challenges of the current pandemic? By centring feminist understandings of time and intergenerational connections, can we resist normalized and privileged cruelties practiced by capitalist patriarchy?
This artist panel invites you to the works of Lena Chen, Mallory Donen, and Sarah Shamash, three women artists who are crafting “care culture” in their communities through their art practice and subverting the expected outcomes of feminized labours. Threading together realities of gender, labour, and surveillance, the artists’ dialogue will expose gendered bodies in resistance, woven into the textile and tactility of the digital world and beyond.
Accessibility: ASL interpretation, descriptive language, and automated captions in English will be provided throughout the event. The event will be recorded, and an English transcript will be made available with the recording after the event.
