Symposium: Streaming in from the Moon

Sat, Nov 19, 2011 at 10am

This event has passed.
This two-day symposium, generously supported by the Simpson Center for the Humanities at the University of Washington, will explore the complex themes of feminism, performance, and the body.

A multidisciplinary artist, Schneemann transformed the definition of contemporary art, steering it toward a discourse on the body, sexuality, and gender. Her controversial and pioneering investigation into suppressive taboos and human sexuality in conflict with the social body continues to inspire further discussion today.

The symposium will feature the innovative research and thinking of distinguished UW faculty and special guest speakers as well as a performance lecture by Carolee Schneemann. Through a series of performances, lectures, public forums, film screenings, and other opportunities for public discourse the symposium will encourage the co-creation of dialogic space within the museum, providing both lecturers and attendees the opportunity to explore topics in an expanded context.

Check back for updates, screening schedules and other event listings related to this symposium.
