Patriarchy Over & Out: Discourse Made Manifest: Corina Apostol and Jasmina Tumbas


Patriarchy Over & Out: Discourse Made Manifest: Corina Apostol and Jasmina Tumbas
Tuesday, June 4, 2019
6:30-8pm

ICI 401 Broadway Suite 1620
New York, NY 10013
FREE and open to the public

On June 4th join ICI for the launch of Patriarchy Over & Out: Discourse Made Manifest the fifth issue of ArtLeaks Gazette with co-editors Corina Apostol and Jasmina Tumbas. In conversation with ArtLeaks contributors, Ana Grujić, Imani Henry, Betty Yu and Amy Weng we consider queer, trans, feminist, racial, and economic justice through discussion and visual exchange of related materials.

This program, which foregrounds work from Publishing Against the Grain, an ICI traveling exhibition, continues ICI’s practice of bringing elements of our international exhibitions into our New York-based public programs to think together about our shared investments.

One of over twenty-five periodicals included in Publishing Against the Grain, ArtLeaks is exemplary of the exhibition’s premise that slowing down can be a form of intellectual resistance. Patriarchy Over & Out: Discourse Made Manifest with Corina Apostal and Jasmina Tumbas activates the objects within the exhibition and engages with neighboring New York based-art collectives and grassroots organizations sharing similar objectives to that of ArtLeaks discourse. In a roundtable discussion of the publication that relies heavily on audience participation, ICI hopes that this event will engage the collaborative and investigative strategies central to the Publishing Against the Grain exhibition.

This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with PATRIARCHY in the subject line.
