Intersectional Feminism & Contemporary Art Panel Discussion

San Diego Art Institute presents an important and necessary discussion of intersectional feminism framed through the lens of contemporary art.

Our speakers will frame their research, artwork, and roles as artists, educators, and writers around the experience of people of color, the LGBTQ community, and the visibility of artists working within a largely white, male-centric art world.

Intersectionality, as coined by professor Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989, is the “The view that women experience oppression in varying configurations and in varying degrees of intensity. Cultural patterns of oppression are not only interrelated, but are bound together and influenced by the intersectional systems of society. Examples of this include race, gender, class, ability, and ethnicity.”

Join San Diego Art Institute as we welcome scholars and artists to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and implications of intersectionality as it relates to both the art world and the current social/economic/political climate.
