SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery offers two core public programs to engage audiences and educate the public about issues surrounding women in the arts.
Conversations is a series of talks and panel discussions where prominent artists, curators, writers, editors, and more are invited to the gallery to discuss current issues surrounding feminism and women in the arts. Each “Conversations” event includes an interactive Q&A session between the panelists and audience.
Past Conversations include:
• “Climate Change: A Dialogue” with panelists Lucy Hodgson (artist), Wopo Holup (artist), Isabella Jacob (artist), Klaus Jacob (Research Scientist at Columbia University), Susannah C. Drake (Principal at DLANDSTUDIO), Kelly Loudenberg (documentary producer/director)
• “Louise Nevelson: Empress of Environment Sculpture” with panelists Laurie Wilson (author and art historian), Gisela Insuaste (sculptor and installation artist), Julie Schenkleberg (sculptor and installation artist), Diane Churchill (painter)
• “What’s Old is New Again: The Legacy of the Feminist Art Movement of the 1970s” with panelists Harriet Lyons (former Visual Arts Editor of Ms. Magazine), Damali Abrams (video artist), Orly Cogan (mixed media artist), Donna Dodson (sculptor), Chris Twomey (installation artist)
SIGHTunSEEN offers gallery tours throughout Chelsea of exhibitions featuring work by women artists. Each tour is led by a guest guide and culminates with a discussion and refreshments at SOHO20. The tours bring attention to the myriad provocative, inquisitive, and engaging works by women artists on view in SOHO20’s neighborhood.
Past SIGHTunSEEN tours have been led by Alyssa Fridgen, Sarah Walko, and Suzanne Stroebe visiting galleries including Asya Geisberg Gallery, Mixed Greens Gallery, and 511 Gallery.
