(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- Art House Productions, along with Hudson County Community College & Seton Hall University, present Art+Feminism Lecture on Wednesday, March 24 at 12:30pm EST via Zoom. Advance registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
According to the Art+Feminism website, the non-profit organization “directly addresses the inequality of gender, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia.” This is accomplished through a coordinated campaign of online training materials and volunteer-organized “edit-a-thons” at a variety of cultural and intellectual institutions across the globe.
In this lecture by Brooke Duffy and Jeanne Brasile, they will provide a very brief overview of the ways in which women and gender diverse artists have traditionally been and continue to be excluded from the art historical canon and global art markets. They will share background information about the Art+Feminism organization and objectives of their wiki-thons.
The lecture culminates with a hands-on activity in which participants can engage with, critically read, and converse about artist Wikipedia pages.
On April 7 from 10:00am-1:00pm EST, the Walsh Library and the Walsh Gallery will host Seton Hall’s second Art+Feminism Wikipedia edit-a-thon. All are invited to register to become “Wikipedians” and edit or create a Wikipedia page for an artist. Click here to register for the event.
To request closed captions or ASL interpreters, please email email@example.com at least 72 hours before the event.
Art House Productions was founded in late September 2001 by Christine Goodman, a community leader and professional performing artist. Art House began as an informal gathering of poets and community members in direct response to the tragedies of September 11th. At that time, there were no consistent performance venues for artists in Jersey City to meet one another and share new work. Art House's inaugural event sprung from the desire to connect a devastated community through art and dialogue. Since then, Art House has established itself as a pioneer of artistic and cultural programming in Hudson County. In 2007 Art House became incorporated and was granted nonprofit 501(c)(3) status. In late 2007, the organization was presented with the Key to the City and an official Proclamation for its outstanding contributions to the City of Jersey City, NJ.
