MAWA Presents: #MeToo in Art - Theory + Beer w/ Christine Brouzes

  • Duke of Kent Legion 277 McDermot Avenue Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free, everyone welcome!

Should art by abusive artists be called out by the #metoo movement? Male actors, directors and producers who have abused or harassed women (or are accused of such behaviours) are suffering professional consequences. Should the same standards apply to artists? And if so, what does this mean for the display of their works? Beyond that, what about artworks that in and of themselves reflect abuse? How does the portrayal of women in art relate to the #metoo movement?
