RAPE, REPRESENTATION, AND RADICALITY
Intersectional feminist art has long dealt with the oppressions and violations stemming from colonialism, slavery, and couverture.  Rape, Representation, and Radicality is a full-day symposium that will explore sex, power, and justice through intersectional art and activism, academics, and healing. The forum brings academic study, intellectual discourse, and visceral candor together to create a shared space and to demand bodily autonomy.

Rape, Representation, and Radicality 
will address how sexual assault has affected feminist art practices, and who has power and why. Presenters will discuss what institutional changes are needed to work towards sexual justice, and how race and gender impact the experiences and responses within the context of contemporary feminist discourse.  The hidden legacy of Women of Color, within the conversation about sexual violence, sexual empowerment, artistic praxis, and art history, must be re-contextualized and revised to be included accurately. The current cultural narrative around sexual violence necessitates re-orientation to include those who are left out of the conversation.  This forum will present strategies to understand, rectify, reclaim and move forward towards healing.


Symposium Chairs:
Christen Clifford (The New School) and Jasmine Wahi (School of Visual arts; Project for Empty Space).
