#metoo in Art with Christine Brouzes

  • October 25, 2018, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
  • Duke of Kent Legion, 227 McDermot Avenue

Free, everyone welcome!

Should art by abusive artists be called out by the #metoo movement? Male actors, directors and producers who have abused or harassed women (or are accused of such behaviours) are suffering professional consequences. Should the same standards apply to artists? And if so, what does this mean for the display of their works? Beyond that, what about artworks that in and of themselves reflect abuse? How does the portrayal of women in art relate to the #metoo movement?
