FEMINIST ART READING CLUB | Session 5

Amanda Simanek 501 views


Join us for our fifth feminist art article club session with local artists discussing the role that feminism and the feminine play in art scenes locally and globally.

The conversation is open to all and not bound to the readings - so please attend if you have an interest but have not completed the readings!

This session we will be diving into the history of Black Cinema and diversity of Hollywood in response to the lack of POC in Oscar nominations.
