Round table on women and the art world


Deborah Kass, Parisian, Gertrude Stein, silkscreen ink on paper, 30×30 inches (edition of 60)


This is tonight at 7pm at Brooklyn Fire Proof. How can you say no to an event that has Deb Kass and Paddy Johnson in the same room?!

Brooklyn Fire Proof and Ad Hoc Vox are pleased to invite you to Double X Art, a round-table discussion that will take place at the gallery on July 18th at 7:00pm.

For Double X Art, Ad Hoc Vox has brought together a select group of artists, curators, dealers, critics, and guests from related disciplines to address the under-representation of women's artistic practices. From WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution at MOCA, to the Global Feminisms show at the Brooklyn Museum, to June's Feminist Art issue of Art in America, the spotlight is on feminist works. Seeking diverse points of view and with no agenda other than to initiate dialogue, Ad Hoc Vox would like to take advantage of this spotlight to facilitate an in-depth conversation about the representation of women in the arts. The discussion's participants are Phong Bui, Colby Chamberlain, Dana Frankfort, Maureen Gallace, Elizabeth Huey, Paddy Johnson, Deborah Kass, Wendy Olsoff, Danica Phelps, Katy Siegel, Lisa Sigal, and Becky Smith. Colleen Asper will moderate the discussion, which will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Organized by Colleen Asper and Jennifer Dudley, Ad Hoc Vox is an ongoing series of discussions and lectures without a fixed location that addresses a wide range of issues in contemporary art.
