Points of View Speaker Series | The Mind, The Heart, and the Art

Audience:

In conjunction with the exhibition, Zanele Muholi and the Women’s Mobile Museumthis discussion will prioritize mental and emotional well being as a sustaining principle for women seeking careers in the arts by highlighting how the inclusion of a culturally aware psychologist impacted ten women artists of different ages, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds as they navigated the Philadelphia Photo Art Center’s year-long, paid apprenticeship in media arts. The panel will speak to the individual and institutional reckonings that occur within a project aspiring to break down economic, racial, and social barriers, while challenging the lack of representation in the traditional art world.

Moderated by artist Andrea Walls, panelists include project psychologist Dr. Kathleen Walls,  artist Shana Roberts, and project manager Lori Waselchuk.
