On April 27, 2011, 7-8 pm, I will be appearing on the radio program Feminist Magazine on KPFK 90.7 FM. The conversation with host Lynn Ballen is a follow-up to the panel discussion called Sisterhood City: Feminist Art in Los Angeles moderated by art historian and critic Betty Ann Brown. Brown, as well as artist Linda Vallejo, will also join the on-air conversation. Our original Sisterhood City conversation at the LA Art Show on January 21, 2011 was great fun. At the time I was writing a catalog essay about collaboration and critic Peter Frank made some insightful observations that I ended up quoting in my essay. “Collaboration, at least on some level, is key to making art socially relevant.”

In reading more about our host Lynn Ballen I noted that her first feminist consciousness came when she was  twelve and living in South Africa and read about “the amazing ’70s women’s movement happening in the far-away USA.” I imagine that’s what we’ll be talking about as well as our current projects.
