Harmony Hammond and writer and art critic Lucy Lippard will be in conversation reflecting upon the artists and artwork of the group exhibition Women's Work at Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, NY.
Lyndhurst's press release follows:
On September 20, Women’s Work: A Conversation with Lucy Lippard and Harmony Hammond will include writer, activist, curator, co-founded various artists’ feminist and activist organizations and publications, and author of 25 books on contemporary art and cultural criticism, Lucy Lippard, will be joined by Harmony Hammond, a leading figure in the development of the feminist art movement in New York in the early 1970s, and co-founder of A.I.R., the first women’s cooperative art gallery in New York. You won’t want to miss this spirited and thought-provoking conversation between two leading figures of the feminist art movement—and two long-time friends—as they reflect on their careers from the 1970s up to the present, and the evolution of “women’s work” in the art world as reflected in the artists and artwork of the Women’s Work exhibition at Lyndhurst.
There have always been great women artists—a fact that feminist art historians have continually and consistently reinforced over the past half century. Using this summer’s new Women’s Work exhibition at Lyndhurst as a source of inspiration, these virtual events will delve into the complex history of women’s artistry; the growing recognition of the influence of women artists, feminist artists, and women artists of color on the art world; and the deep connections that exist between the production of art and the places where women created it.
These virtual events are brought to you by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Where Women Made History program in conjunction with the Women’s Work exhibition at Lyndhurst—a National Trust Historic Site."
