CFP: TFAP Day of Panels 2019

May 7, 2018 - Jun 14, 2018



The Feminist Art Project's Day of Panels will be co chaired by Christen Clifford and Jasmine Wahi. The Day of Panels will be held at The Hilton In NYC at CAA on Feb 16th, 2019. The 2019 symposium will focus on rape and representation. The co chairs are looking for papers, video and art that dwell in the sexual wounds of rape and sexual assault and look for the light of sexual justice. We seek a wide array of proposals on possible topics such as rape and representation, the meanings of sexual justice, gender and power in the art world, intersectional feminisms and responses to assault.

How has sexual assault affected feminist art practices? Who has power and why? What institutional changes need to happen to work towards sexual justice? Feminist art has long dealt with the oppressions and violations of colonialism, slavery, and couverture. TFAP 2019 is dedicated to the exploration of sex, power and justice through intersectional art and activism, academics and healing, and creating a shared space:  bringing intellect and emotion together to demand bodily autonomy.

The day of panels will feature panels, video art, and a digital gallery.
