Gender Play Design and Art Conference

Parsons The New School for Design is hosting GENDER PLAY, a two-day conference on March 28 and 29 at The New School that will explore the issue of gender and its impact and influence on the production of art and design. The conference features an international mix of artists, designers, researchers, and scholars in the field. It will serve as the platform for the launch of the international Gender Design Network (iGDN), a new initiative aimed at connecting designers and artists around this topic. The first day of the conference will focus on gender in relation to the design fields, while the second day will explore some of the major theoretical and political debates in the fine arts, from second-wave feminism to postcolonial influences and queer theory. The conference is free and open to the public but reservations are required.
