Skin In the Game
Get an inside look at PAFA’s ground-breaking exhibition, Joan Semmel: Skin in the Game, with Curator of Contemporary Art Jodi Throckmorton.
This is the first retrospective of the artist’s work, spanning sixty years of the iconic artist’s groundbreaking paintings, from her early abstract-expressionist paintings through her movement-defining feminist art and activism to the vital work that she is making of her own mature body today.
Semmel’s work reflects the ongoing struggle for women’s equal representation and power to make decisions about their own bodies and sexuality while centering female empowerment through the self.
The fall's Art-at-Noon lectures are supported by the Behrend Family in memory of Rose Susan Hirschhorn Behrend, a former docent at the Academy and great supporter of its education programs.
