Until very recently, the art historical record has been primarily written by, and about, men. In conjunction with its current exhibition, The Collectivists, a group show highlighting artist-run alternatives to mainstream cultural institutions, the Brand Library is hosting Herstorians, a panel discussion on the opportunities, challenges, and obligations that female arts writers have to examine underrepresented artists and demographics. Moderated by Artillery Magazine editor Tulsa Kinney, the panel includes Annie Buckley (Artforum, Los Angeles Review of Books), Carol Cheh (LA Weekly, Another Righteous Transfer), Sharon Mizota (Los Angeles Times), and Leanna Robinson (Artillery Magazine). Following the discussion, there will be a reception celebrating the launch of the latest issue of Artillery titled “Art & the New Regime,” which focuses on artists’ responses to the Trump administration.
When: Sunday, March 5, 2–3:30pm
Where: Brand Library & Art Center (1601 West Mountain Street, Glendale, California)
