Women’s Rights Are Human Rights Zoom Event Reception Talk & Tour

About this event
After over a year of closure, the shuttering of shows and postponement of various poignant and timely exhibitions for 2020-2021, we are now excited to announce the return of our first, on-site exhibition at our Kellogg Univ Art Gallery venue (Bldg 35A) at Cal Poly Pomona, along with a synchronous, downloadable, interactive, virtual exhibition!
In honor of the countless hours of staff-time dedicated to this project, while “learning by doing”, in order to produce this mind-bending virtual experience that celebrates the wonderment of all participant-artists’ work, we are enthused to invite students, faculty and the arts community to join us on a “Virtual” Artists’ Talk & Tour of our Women’s Rights Are Human Rights graphic posters exhibition.
Women’s Rights Are Humans Rights: International Posters on Gender-based Inequality, Violence, and Discrimination is an exhibition that features fine art graphic posters created by both men and women to celebrate and acknowledge the vital role that all citizens play in protecting and promoting human rights while challenging gender inequality and stereotypes, advancing reproductive and sexual rights, protecting women and girls against brutality, and promoting women’s empowerment, education, and participation in society. The posters argue for the empowerment of women, achievement of equality between women and men, and the elimination of discrimination against women and girls.
During this Talk & Tour event, as we stroll through a guided tour of the computer-generated gallery space, we will be joined on Zoom by a panel of amazing graphic artists, our esteemed Guest Curator, Elizabeth Resnick of the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, and Kellogg Art Gallery Curator, Michele Cairella Fillmore. The event will include an interactive, on-line viewing of the Virtual Exhibition and, what will prove to be, a lively and enriching conversational exchange with this select panel of participating artists and curators. Event starts at 2pm (PST).
Join participating artists, Alice Drueding, Anita Kunz and Parisa Tashakori for personal insight about their work and their creative process, guest curator’s selection criteria and her process of developing an international traveling exhibition with such timely and poignant themes, and the curatorial and exhibition design challenges of exhibiting work virtually during a pandemic. Join us in asking pertinent questions and encountering art in a unique, virtual experience like no other!
