Part of American Studies 2nd Art & Social Criticism Lecture Series...

This lecture takes a critical look at the proliferation of outspoken, unflinching, DIY signs on reproductive rights—expressions of agency and exuberant creative energy—at the January 21, 2017 Woman’s March. Hertz asks compelling questions about the imagery on these signs and what they communicate about reproduction,
gender, and sexuality. The lecture takes stock of what we do and do not have in common, culturally and biologically, across various social markers including access to power.


Betti-Sue Hertz is currently a lecturer in Stanford’s American Studies Program; project curator, Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis; and visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute. She was director of visual arts, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 2008-2015; curator of contemporary art, San Diego Museum of Art,
2000-2008; and director, Longwood Arts Project, 1992-1998.
