As a part of the groundbreaking retrospective exhibition Suzanne Lacy: We Are Here, SFMOMA brings together curators and scholars to discuss the impact of feminism on contemporary artistic practice. This day-long symposium includes a screening of Lynn Hershman Leeson’s !Women, Art, Revolution (2010), which documents the challenges faced by women artists within the larger framework of the civil rights movement, and features artists such as Suzanne Lacy, Judy Chicago, and the Guerilla Girls. Panel discussions offer firsthand perspectives into feminist curatorial practice and recent exhibitions, as well as explorations of feminism as it intersects with issues of race, class, sexuality, and gender, and the levers of power and privilege. Speakers include Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Astria Suparak, Apsara DiQuinzio, and Jacqueline Francis.
