In Her Own Voice: Surrealist Women Artists, First Friday Lecture by Celia Rabinovitch at MAWA

  • MAWA 611 Main Street Winnipeg, MB Canada (map)

Free, everyone welcome!

This First Friday Lecture will discuss surrealist women artists, including Meret Oppenheim and Dorothea Tanning, and others such as Lucita Hurtado Mullican and Barbara Stauffacher Solomon who Rabinovitch interviewed in oral histories taken in 2009. All felt strongly about themselves as artists and contested the accepted role of women in surrealism. Their words create a new frame of reference for surrealism and uncover issues in the social history and the politics of the art world.
