Miami artist Rosa Naday Garmendia’s work will be exhibited, as well as Frankfort, Kentucky artist L.A. Watson. There will be a panel discussion to explore how artists conceive themselves as activists on Thursday, September 7 from 5:30 to 7pm. Exhibiting artists participating on the panel are Celestia Morgan, Miriam Omura, and L.A. Watson. Birmingham social activist T. Marie King will also join the panel, moderated by Jessica Dallow.

As a Co-Founder of Space One Eleven, Prinz has organized and presented hundreds of exhibitions exploring social justice issues. Dallow is Interim Chair and Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Art and Art History, and is an authority in the field of modern and contemporary feminist art. In 2018 there will be two additional women’s exhibitions in the series that will feature emerging artists and sculptors. Accompanying panel discussions will explore the attitudes toward feminist art among women of different generations and shifts from feminist issues of the 80s to broader societal issues of today.

This project is supported by a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities; the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, and the Puffin Foundation.
