Additional Programming:

Cafe Society, a year-long series featuring several Columbia College exhibitions, welcomes the Columbia community and the public for a salon style discussion of Tomboy. November 16, 4:00-6:00pm in the Glass Curtain Gallery.

Tomboy examines the degrees to which identity and gender influence meaning in the work of six contemporary queer women artists.  From painterly gestures to performative acts, sculptural installations to digitally altered photographs, this exhibition explores the variety of approaches artists take in negotiating notions of identity.  These works turn away from the essentialism of early feminist art and the specificity of “identity art,” and instead employ identity in intentionally ambiguous, mercurial, and peripheral ways.  Tomboy delves into the murky spaces between the personal, the political, and the formal in order to ask viewers the question: “can and should what we know about an artist be separated from how we experience their work?”

Participating Artists:

Kelli Connell

Dana DeGiulio

Daphne Fitzpatrick

Mary George

Allison Halter

Leeza Meksin

Tomboy is curated by Betsy Odom

Blog Carnival Call for Posts: Healing Touch

If you can’t get to New York to see or perform in our monthly live event,  the Blog Carnival is a way for sex workers and their allies to participate in the Red Umbrella Diaries from afar. Every month, I do a carnival of pieces of writing on the upcoming event’s theme.

For the next event, which takes place on October 7, the theme is Healing Touch. Here’s a little something to get you started thinking:

People in the sex trades are usually seen as being in need of public health interventions: condoms, HIV testing, and psychological counseling. But there are also sex workers who fancy themselves to be healers and who consent to participating in the medical profession in order to teach health care professionals a thing or two.

Send me a piece that is up to 700 words long, and I’ll pick my favorite to read at the event – and of course then I’ll put the recording in the weekly Red Umbrella Diaries audio podcast. Your piece can be previously published on your own blog or elsewhere, or you can conceal your identity and email me a piece that you can’t put your name on. The themes can be interpreted all kinds of different ways, I love to see creativity. Send your links or text to stories@redumbrellaproject.com by September 21st.
