Teen Talks is back on Wednesday, August 12th at 4:00PM EST for a presentation with Rachael Schwabe titled Process and Power: Women Performance Artists, 1960s – Present.
Rachael Schwabe is an educator at the Bard Graduate Center. She is currently working with alumni members of BGC’s Teen Thinkers Lab on an interpretation project for BGC’s upcoming “Majolica Mania” exhibition. Her research interests include sentimentality & empathy in 1980s-1990s process art, and the craft of performance/the performance of craft. Her recent MA thesis focused on New York-based artist Janine Antoni’s affectual connection with 1970s Body Art and nineteenth century sentimental objects. Rachael believes that looking closely at performance art prompts us to re-examine the power of our own bodily movements, and the way that we process the material world through our bodies.
