Join us for a virtual talk by artist and filmmaker Alisa Yang (U‑M Stamps School of Art & Design MFA ’16), whose research based practice explores alternative ways art can be a currency for care. This event kicks off the annual Ann Arbor Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon and will be followed by a public Q&A.
Centering the body as a site of geopolitical and social conditionings, Yang works across video, installation, and situational specific projects in orienting oneself towards social change. Her films focus on the experiences of Asian women navigating cultural identity and generational trauma, mining personal narratives with humor and vulnerability.
The 2022 version of the Ann Arbor Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is a week-long series of virtual events that include artist talks and a Wikipedia edit-a-thon. Art+Feminism is a community of international activists that are committed to closing information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts, beginning with Wikipedia. The 2022 Ann Arbor Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is a collaboration between U‑M Library, Stamps Gallery, and LSA Technology Services.
