Apologies, Philosophies & Art – Intersectionality in the Misogyny Papers/Apology Project
September 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
On Thursday, September 30th, artist Victor Davson will be joined by Dr. Antoinette Ellis-Williams and other esteemed scholars in a panel to discuss the artworks in his ongoing Misogyny Papers/Apology project. Exhibiting at Gallery Aferro’s Memorial Gallery, the ongoing series, which Davson began work on in 2018, draws on what he describes as “a long tradition of socially engaged art [channeled] through the lens of contemporary life in the wake of the #MeToo movement.”
Of the project, curator Dr. Cynthia Hawkins posits, “I believe it is important that works of art, even as they address critical social issues, must be extended beyond the artist’s intent for the work. In other words, how or in what ways can Misogyny Papers/Apology, a multi-panel, two-dimensional body of works be linked to other ideas, philosophies, or content?”
Davson and guests will expound on Dr. Hawkins’ premise and speak not only of his philosophical findings while in the process of creating the work, but also center it within current sociopolitical debates surrounding race, gender, misogyny, patriarchy, intersectionality, and more.
Free and open to everyone! Masks are required.
