PERFORMANCES, EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
In early December, I'm headed to Bari, Italy to teach a workshop and explore some questions around my solo project looking at women artists during fascist times. I plan to share the questions and experiences I am grappling with, with 5 other women artists from Poland, Greece, Brazil, Venezuela, and Italy - all women who are living in political climates they don’t agree with.
