POSTPONED Artist Talk: Carmen Winant
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. We’re working to reschedule with the artist in Fall 2020, stay tuned for details. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Please join Casey Riley, curator and head of photography and new media at Mia, for a public conversation with Carmen Winant, Roy Lichtenstein Chair of Studio Art, Ohio State University. An artist and author, Winant uses installation and collage to examine feminist modes of survival and revolt. Drawing upon her most recent project—created in partial collaboration with her eldest child—Winant will reflect upon her artistic practice within the context of her experiences as a working mother. Together, Winant and Riley will discuss texts and images included within Mia’s forthcoming photography exhibition “Just Kids,” to consider the cultural impact of photography upon a new generation of photographic consumers and creators.
Winant is the former dean of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and has published three artist’s books—My Life as a Man, My Birth, and Notes on fundamental joy; seeking the elimination of oppression through the social and political transformation of the patriarchy that otherwise threatens to bury us. Her groundbreaking 2018 collage, My Birth, presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, was widely heralded as a revolutionary feminist intervention within the spaces of the museum.
