Saturday, March 9, 1985, 7:30 pm
Location: The Renaissance Society
Kate Linker, New York art critic, author and guest curator of this exhibition, will lecture on the exhibition. She will examine topics explored by works in the exhibition including: the formation of subjectivity within language, as developed by the theory of Jacques Lacan; the relations of specularity enforced through the dominant media of photographs and cinema; the construction and reinforcement of sexual stereotypes and roles; and the varied tactics of rupture which attempt to provide space for the admission of repressed female subjectivity.
