Dangerous Bodies

February 4 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until February 18, 2021


In this three-part series taught by artist, writer, and PAFA alum Clarity Haynes participants will look at the suppression of queer, trans, and feminist representation of bodies in contemporary art and art history. Haynes’ will begin with the contemporary problem of social media censorship, a topic she’s personally experienced and written about in her Hyperallergic Piece, I’m a Queer Feminist Artist. Why Are My Paintings Censored on Social Media?

Dangerous Bodies will revisit the classic feminist question of the male gaze and ask what kinds of bodies are deemed unacceptable? Participants will consider ways that the female, maternal, aging, ill, disabled, fat, nonwhite, queer and trans body has been depicted and erased in art history.

This program is connected with the exhibition Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale
