Art as Social Activism: An Intergenerational Conversation with the Guerrilla Girls and Amanda Curreri

January 22, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a lively discussion on the occasion of the opening of Rochester Art Center’s Spring 2016 exhibition, Amanda Curreri: The Calmest of Us Would Be Lunatics. Centering on common conceptual threads across their practices, Curreri together with the Guerrilla Girls will consider visual strategies, how social justice and cultural topics inform their work, and invoking social activism as a methodology for engagement.

Come early for the opening reception, starting at 6:30 pm.
