Please join us for a cup of tea and a rousing discussion on gender, art, collaboration and activism during Ask Me, I will Tell, an event hosted by A Feminist Tea Party at the CAA conference in New York on February 10th, from 10am-12pm.
As always, we will be serving up steaming pots of tea, pink cupcakes, and lively conversation at the Women’s Caucus for Art’s LIVEspace. Critic and curator Yulia Tikhonova will be moderating this panel/event/discussion. Please see here for more information on LIVEspace, including the projects of other participants, all focused on women, art, and activism.
Joining us will be a few of our favorite New York-based feminists:
Brainstormers is an art collective that, through public performance, exhibition, publication, internet, and video, has forced discussion on a topic that most would rather avoid: gross gender inequities in the contemporary New York Art World.
For the Birds is a New York City-based feminist collective working towards establishing alternative spaces that promote the creative interests of women-identified community members. Through DIY feminist cultural activism, For The Birds aims to empower and support radical women of action.
Petrushka Bazin is an independent curator and arts administrator committed to finding new ways of making art more accessible. As Program Manager of The Laundromat Project, she works closely with the organization’s teaching artists and public artists in residence to present engaging art programs in unconventional spaces throughout the Greater New York Area.
This event is free and open to the public. Please join the conversation regardless of your gender, your political persuasion or whether you identify as feminist. Bring friends and wear a costume if you would like!
