Artist talk to focus on gender fluidity
- Published: February 20, 2012
Sculptor and performance artist Linda Stein of New York City will speak on gender fluidity this Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 8 p.m. at McGregor 113 on the Antioch College campus. Her talk, “Salander/Blomkvist: Challenging stereotypes in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — and beyond,” will focus on the gender-bending main characters of the recent Swedish film, along with other new female icons who challenge gender stereotypes, such as Lady Gaga.
Stein’s talk is open to the public. She will also show 17 minutes from the film.
While Stein’s art is not currently on display at Antioch, her exhibit, “The Fluidity of Gender” is on exhibit at the Burnell R. Roberts Triangle Gallery at Sinclair Community College in Dayton until March 7. Organizers of the Antioch College Herndon Gallery hope to bring Stein’s work to Antioch in the future.
