Join us for an evening with visual artist Lynda Benglis and Kimberly Drew, writer, curator, and activist.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Artists on the Future provides renowned international artists and cultural thought leaders with a platform to catalyze alternative perspectives on urgent socio-political questions and create dialogue between different communities in Silicon Valley and beyond.
Best known for her wax paintings and poured latex sculptures, Lynda Benglis came to prominence at the height of the second-wave feminist movement in the 1960s. Since then, the renowned artist has often dealt with gendered stereotypes in her work, in the context of a male-dominated art world.
Benglis will discuss what it means to be a ‘woman artist’ alongside Kimberly Drew, a writer, curator and social activist who is committed to making art “radically accessible to all.” They will examine how one can move away from prescriptive labels and instead towards individual autonomy. They will also discuss how artists and curators can continue to innovate, defy categorization and be catalysts for social change.
