The Feminist Art Project Day of Panels at the College Art Association:

“Feminism and Institutions”

Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 10 a.m.–5:40 p.m.
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor at the Brooklyn Museum, New York
The Museum website reads: “This day-long series of panels will focus on the intersections of feminist and institutional practices, asking how institutions have integrated feminist perspectives into their long-term curatorial, collections, and programming objectives. Sessions will examine how the museum, as a quasi-public space, negotiates representations of sexuality and gender; how institutions can be “queered” to become more inclusive and less normative; and how feminism might impact institutions in the long term through collection plans and mission statements. There will be a special focus on the institutional archive as a platform especially conducive to a feminist voice. This program is hosted by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art and the Institute for Women and Art at Rutgers University. It is free with Museum admission.”
The moderators and artists are: Tirza True Latimer, Kim Anno, Apsara DiQuinzio, Thomas Lax, Jeannine Tang, Andrea Geyer, Sabine Breitwieser, Aruna D’Souza, Harmony Hammond, Catherine Lord, Ulrike Müller, Martha Wilson, Saisha Grayson, Cathleen Chaffee, Norman Kleeblatt, Jenelle Porter, Anne Swartz, Elissa Auther, Claudia Hart, Jeffreen Hayes and Jennifer Tyburczy.

Cultural Confluences’ reflects warmth of diversity‘, Rachel Howard, San Francisco Chronicle.

“Cultural Confluences: The Art of Lenore Chinn” at the Luggage Store, Tirza True Latimer/ SFMOMA Open Space

SFMOMA Open Space: These portraits dignify subjects whose psyches, bodies, and relationships have undergone the indignities of discrimination based on race, gender, and sexual orientation. Collectively, this body of work–vibrant and strong–redefines what community, friendship, family, creativity, and Culture with a capital “C” look like. – Tirza True Latimer, Associate Professor and Chair of the Graduate Program in Visual and Critical Studies at California College of the Arts, San Francisco
