Feminist Art

Join Jen Sudul Edwards, Ph.D. (BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART) at LaCa Projects

Dr. Sudul Edwards will talk about feminism, how it relates to the history of art, and this social and political movement's influence on artists over the last century. Her talk will only take up the first half of the evening. For the second half, Dr. Sudul Edwards has curated an installation of Charlotte artists who will talk about their work and the influence of feminism on their practice.  

Jennifer Sudul Edwards received her doctorate in 2014 from New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, writing her dissertation on the early works of Niki de Saint Phalle with a fellowship from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
