Please join ICI for The New York Times Feminist Reading Group. The reading group will be dedicated to looking at the March 20, 2013 edition of The New York Times from a feminist perspective.

ICI’s Curatorial Hub will be open to the public throughout the day as a reading room for those who want to arrive early to browse complementary copies of the newspaper before the evening session.

Linden and Kennedy have been collaborating since 2008. Their projects have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New Museum, The Brooklyn Museum’s Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and Performa ’09, as well as at other museums and galleries in New York, Los Angeles, and internationally.
