Wed, Nov 18th – Women’s Narratives Through Art: kathy klein
November 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us over Zoom on Wednesday, November 18 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm for an artist’s talk with exhibiting artist kathy klein. Her show, currently on display at the WNDC, “Women’s Narratives,” addresses themes of women’s lives and the #MeToo movement. She will discuss her art and their relationship with the ongoing conversations about sexual violence and women’s rights. We look forward to a fascinating conversation about the relationship between art and politics!
Typically working toward a series, Klein’s paintings grows out of issues facing women in the world. Drawing on her experience teaching women’s studies, she reads deeply and widely in whatever subject has caught her attention. This early immersion in the ideas, she says, allows her to paint freely later. “My continuing challenge is to deconstruct women’s verbal narratives and reinscribe them visually without resorting to un-mediated representation.”
