The New York Times Feminist Reading Group..@ the WHitney this coming Saturday







SAT, NOV 5, 2016  

1–2:30 PM

Location: Floor Three, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center,
Hearst Artspace
On the occasion of the historic 2016 U.S. presidential election,
artists Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden perform their ongoing project
The New York Times Feminist Reading Group, which is dedicated
 to reading the day’s issue of The New York Times from a feminist perspective.

The New York Times Feminist Reading Group combines different
models of feminist gatherings, including consciousness-raising
groups of the 1960s and 70s activism, academic seminar formats,
and socially-oriented book-clubs most often convened in the hosts’
domestic spaces. Because current events are a fluid and changing
subject matter, each performance differs dramatically, shaped as
well by the range of backgrounds and political positions of the
 participants in the room. The New York Times Feminist Reading
Group is a way to examine the media landscape through the lens
of feminism but also look at the diversity of feminisms represented
in media, and in this way each performance tells us something
about the wide variety of what feels urgent and relevant to each
 participant that day.
Free with Museum admission.
