Dorit Cypis Lecture Tonight!

Dorit Cypis will be presenting a Visiting Artist Lecture, co-sponsored by EA&ER, tonight in F200 at 7 PM. Dorit works with the body, space and memory and, after pursuing an MA in conflict resolution, is increasingly concerned in her work with body and social relationships, including the current conflict in the Middle East.

Click here for a review of Dorit's work, "Sightlines", which is featured in Consider This..., the LACMA Lab exhibition curated by Barbara Kruger. The show will be open until January 15 so be sure to check it out.

Welcome to the EA&ER Blog!

Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions is a year-long project based at California Institute of the Arts investigating the contemporary relationship between feminism, art & society. EA&ER will culminate in two major events in March 2007 which will take place on CalArts' Valencia campus:

Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions Exhibition
March 5-10, 2007
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 9, 2007, 8-11 PM
What does feminist art look like today? The exhibition will feature works by CalArts students, faculty, and recent alumni. The week will also feature performances and other exciting events.

Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions Symposium
Saturday March 10, 2007

The symposium will feature three panel discussions addressing the strategies and contexts of contemporary feminist art practice. Current panelists include: Mary Kelly, Faith Wilding, Martha Rosler, Andrea Bowers, Dorit Cypis, Emily Roysdon, and Connie Butler.

Other events/workshops include: theater performances, performance art, film screenings, readings, consciousness-raising sessions, feminist wall-building workshop, and a visiting artist lecture series.

Now that the blog is up and running, be sure to check back frequently for updates. We'll be posting announcements, interesting links and ideas that cross our path, and topics for discussion. We hope you'll make use of the "Comments" option at the bottom of each post to respond and share your thoughts.
