All’s Fair: Lucy Lippard in Conversation with Tomie Arai

Monday, October 2, 2023
3 – 4PM

Join us for a moderated conversation between Lucy Lippard and Tomie Arai, sharing their thoughts on the legacy and future of feminist art.

In 1983, the National Women’s Studies Association Conference celebrated its 5th anniversary on the campus of The Ohio State University. Multiple cultural events were coordinated in conjunction with the conference. One of these, the exhibition All’s Fair: Love and War in New Feminist Art, was guest curated by noted feminist art critic, curator and scholar Lucy Lippard. Twenty feminist artists (including two artist collaborations) were put together in one exhibition at the Hoyt Sherman Gallery in Sullivant Hall. Amongst those was Tomie Arai, a public artist who continues to create socially conscious art today.

This hybrid program is free and open to the public. Lucy and Tomie’s conversation will be held over Zoom. Participants can join remotely or gather to view the program and enjoy refreshments in Thompson Library, Room 150. After the talk, there will be a gallery walkthrough with Abject Object curator Courtney Hunt.
