This event will be recorded and posted with summary on west.stanford.edu following February 24th.
In conjunction with the Bill Lane Center for the American West’s ongoing ArtsWest Initiative, this symposium gathers Claudia Altman-Siegel (Director, Altman Siegel Gallery), Renny Pritikin (Chief Curator, Contemporary Jewish Museum), Hung Liu (Artist & Professor Emerita of Art, Mills College) with Käthe Kollwitz of the Guerilla Girls for a discussion on how the intergenerational roles of women have changed and influenced contemporary female artists active in today’s Western American-based art scene. The panel will scrutinize the march for gender parity in the art world and the movement to increase the underrepresentation of women artists in critical reception, commercial appeal, and institutional support.
The symposium will begin with a keynote address from Arnold J. Kemp (Dean of Graduate Studies, School of the Art Institute of Chicago) and will be moderated by Claudia Schmuckli (Contemporary Curator, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco).
Attendance to this event is free, but advanced registration is recommended as seating is limited.
This event is sponsored by Stanford University and Minnesota Street Project.
