A lecture by Catherine Morris, Sackler Family Curator, Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art

Thursday, April 9, 2015, 2:00-3:30 pm | Free
University of Ottawa, Desmarais, 55 Laurier, room 12110

Co-presented by the Ottawa Art Gallery and the University of Ottawa

In the exhibition Alma: The Life and Art of Alma Duncan (1917-2004) held at the Ottawa Art Gallery in 2014, co-curators Jaclyn Meloche and Catherine Sinclair worked to recover Alma Duncan’s life and work in a comprehensive retrospective of the artist’s career. The exhibition inspired questions such as: what does it mean to recover a woman artist today?;  is there still an institutional need to practice feminist art history?; and what are the contemporary conditions for the women’s recovery project? In this context, the OAG and the University of Ottawa have invited Curator Catherine Morris as a fresh voice in this field, to speak on her work at the Brooklyn Museum and on her point of view on the questions above.
