  3. Excerpts of interview with artist Alyson Pou talking about her up-coming project.

    Exhibition September 6, 2012 - March 30th 2013
    Aljira a Center for Contemporary Art, 591 Broad Street Newark, NJ

    The installation WHEREIN FURY TAKES FLIGHT…“the time of our silence is over” by Alyson Pou consists of a cluster of nine long dark dresses hovering in the center of the gallery, their full and billowing skirts collide as they madly spin frozen in their attempt to reach the ceiling. A warren of life size white rabbits are scattered around the outer edges of the scene gazing transfixed upon the scene through human like eyes.

  4. PANEL:
    "Artist, Woman, Human: Feminism in Practice"
    Chair: Anoka Faruqee, Yale University
    Panelists: Mariángeles Soto-Díaz, University of Iowa; Erika Suderberg, University of California, Riverside; Dorit Cypis, Independent Artist

    Materialist, pragmatist philosophies, such as the neo-humanism of Edward Said and engaged secular
    Buddhism, strive to define social theory apart from dogma and lament the lack of methodologies of
    “practice” (as in relation to the prosaic and the body, for example) in Western philosophical traditions. We
    will discuss conflicts between dogma and practice, defining “practice” as artistic, activist or even religious,
    with a focus on feminist histories. Ultimately, to address systemic inequities in society, including
    entrenched patriarchy, no gesture is too small. In 2012, social inequities can be subtle enough to seem
    invisible; and resistance may function in a similar way. The myth that activism must be singularly fierce to
    be committed needs to be challenged. We need to think of activism in the plural and open form. What
    shapes do activism and feminism take during the day: at home, in the classroom or in the studio?

  5. PANEL:
    "Colleagues, Co-conspirators, and Partners: Perspectives from Feminist Men"
    Chairs: Audrey Chan, J. Paul Getty Museum; Elana Mann, Scripps College
    Panelists: Tavia Nyong’o, New York University; Glenn Phillips, Getty Research Institute; Howard Singerman, University of Virginia

    Looking back upon the history of feminism, it is evident that men have played a vital but under-recognized role in the feminist movement as colleagues, co-conspirators, and partners in the ongoing project of reimagining society and culture. This panel seeks to embrace the diversity of practitioners of feminist art scholarship today, particularly men who are influenced by and contribute to these expansive bodies of thought. Panelists will address such questions as: How has the professional training of artists been influenced by gender dynamics? Who were the men of the Feminist Art Movement? How has queer performativity shaped the way women and men make art together or independently? Panelists will also discuss their relationship to contemporary feminist discourse.
