feminist artist conference @ 1st Thursdays
some notes I made at the artist talk portion of the Long Winter take over of AGO’s 1st Thursday celebration. the moderated talk about why feminism still matters was presented by After School & Hazlitt, and featured a panel of Shary Boyle, Petra Collins, Vanessa Dunn, & Aminah Sheikh.
unfortunately we didn’t realize that the music would also happen on the 5th floor, and we left after the talk. the 5th floor was at capacity. with a long line up to get back upstairs- so we ended up missing the music :S kind of a bummer. I prefer the Long Winter style programming where they cram as much art & music & video & installation as possible into the one building. that seems to make up for things being too crowded to access -(also my complaint about Nuit Blanche).
