This Week

SOLD OUT Guerrilla Girls | Artist Talk
Wed. Apr 3, 5pm
Salomon Hall, room 101

"The Guerrilla Girls are feminist activist artists. We wear gorilla masks in public and use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose gender and ethnic bias as well as corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. Our anonymity keeps the focus on the issues, and away from who we might be: we could be anyone and we are everywhere. We believe in an intersectional feminism that fights discrimination and supports human rights for all people and all genders. We undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair."

First come, first seated. Registration does not guarantee admission. Additionally, all unclaimed seats are released to the standby audience 15 minutes before program start time. Once the event begins, late admission will not be allowed. 
The lecture will be live streamed here.

Hale County This Morning, This Evening | Screening and Q&A
Mon. Apr 8, 7-9pm

Metcalf Auditorium, Brown University
190 Thayer Street

Brown Arts Student Council (BASC) is excited to present a screening of Hale County This Morning, This Evening (dir. RaMell Ross). Nominated for Best Documentary at the 91st Academy Awards, Ross employs the integrity of nonfiction filmmaking and the currency of stereotypical imagery to fill in the gaps between individual black male icons. Hale County This Morning, This Evening draws from the visual language of portraiture but breaks from its historically racist aesthetic frameworks to expand the possibilities for expression of African American men on film. It also received the Special Jury Award for Creative Vision at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Please register for a free ticket here.
