Francesca Carella Arfinengo delivers a First Friday Lecture, December, 2018

Lectures at MAWA focus on a variety of topics of interest to women and gender minority visual artists. They are presented by artists, curators, academics, critics and others in the cultural sector. These guests speak to the MAWA community about their personal art practices, topical art issues, art theory or art history, encouraging rigorous art engagement and discourse.
