(re)FOCUS Panel: (im)positions - Women Portraying Women’s Bodies @ Tyler

(re)FOCUS Panel: (im)positions – Women Portraying Women’s Bodies

Tyler and Temple Contemporary hosts an alumni panel discussion entitled (im)positions – Women Portraying Women’s Bodies, featuring a conversation among visual artists Erin M. Riley (MFA ’09), Autumn Wallace (BFA ’18), and Chelsey Luster (BFA ’19), moderated by art historian and Tyler Professor Emerita Therese “Terry” Dolan, PhD.

The event is part of (re)FOCUS 2024, a citywide festival (January 27—May 31) celebrating the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking 1974 festival Philadelphia Focuses on Women in the Visual Arts, one of the first large-scale surveys of the work of contemporary American women artists.

Organized by Judith K. Brodsky (MFA ’67) and Diane Burko with the assistance of Marsha Moss, (re)FOCUS shows how women-identified and BIPOC artists have moved from the periphery to the center of the art world. Like its 1974 predecessor, (re)FOCUS is a collaboration among Philadelphia’s diverse visual arts institutions.

Reception: 6-6:30 p.m. at Temple Contemporary
Panel Discussion: 6:30-8 p.m. in First Floor Auditorium, Science Education and Research Center (SERC)
