SOHO20 Fellowship and upcoming events

SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery has announced their call for fellowship applications, deadline March 1st. The gallery supports the work of women artists through exhibitions and public programming. All women artists working in any medium are welcome to apply.

The gallery is also teaming up with the Feminist Art Project (TPAF) and the College Art Association Annual Conference 2013 to present two events next month! Below are the details for an exciting weekend of events dedicated to feminism and art.

February 16 @ The Brooklyn Museum – Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium
TPAF@CAA Day of Panels
10am – 5:30pm // free and open to the public
Organized by Catherine Morris, Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum.
The event features an impressive roster of artists, curators and critics in conversation surrounding feminism within art institutions, their archival practices, and more.

The symposium will focus on the intersections of feminist and institutional practices, asking how institutions have integrated feminist perspectives into their long term curatorial, collections, and programmatic objectives. Sessions will examine how the museum as a quasi-public space has and continues to negotiate representations of sexuality and gender; how institutions can be “queered” to become more inclusive and less normative, and how feminism may impact institutions in the long term through collection plans and mission statements. There will be a special focus on the role of the institutional archive as a platform particularly conducive to a feminist voice. 

You can see the full schedule of events here.
