Vivien Fryd to Moderate Feminist Art Project Panel at CAA Conference

Posted by on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 in Conferences, Events, HART, News, Vanderbilt University, VRC.

Vivien Fryd, professor of history of art, will moderate one of The Feminist Art Project panels on February 16 at the annual College Art Association conference held this year in New York City. Intersectional feminist art has long dealt with the oppressions and violations stemming from colonialism, slavery, and couverture. Rape, Representation, and Radicality is a full-day symposium that will explore sex, power, and justice through intersectional art and activism, academics, and healing.

Fryd’s panel will address Gender, Sexuality, and Power: Social Activist Art Practices. Among the panelists is another Vanderbilt professor, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, the Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair of Fine Arts and professor of art.

Participants will address how sexual assault has affected feminist art practices, and who has power and why. What institutional changes are needed to work towards sexual justice, and how do race and gender impact the experiences and responses within the context of contemporary feminist discourse?
