Dismantling the Gaze: A Visual Primer

This program launches ICP’s new series, Dismantling the Gaze, which considers looking, power, and visual culture in the #MeToo moment. Art historian and popular culture scholar Maria Elena Buszek presents hundreds of years of visual culture in one brief presentation that concisely illustrates the gendered power structures deeply embedded in cultural production. She will then lead a discussion with artists Patricia Silva and Endia Beal, delving into contemporary examples that both demonstrate and subvert traditional gendered hierarchies in visual media.
