"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.
