How I Became a Feminist Artist

October 19th, 2011

Artist presentation by Audrey Chan at “Still Doin’ It: Fanning the Flames of the Woman’s Building” at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles on October 16, 2011. The symposium/convening/reunion offered a dialogue between feminist artists then and now. Featured artists included: Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Susan E. King, Suzanne Lacy, Audrey Chan, Onya Hogan-Finlay, and Elana Mann.

The event coincided with the exhibition “Doin’ It In Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman’s Building”, part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time initiative.

Special thanks to Meg Linton (Curator and Director of Galleries and Exhibitions, Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design) and Paige Tighe (Curatorial Associate).
