“Women and Work” continues a series of conversations and accompanying exhibits around the theme of Visualizing Care, in which we invite artists, activists, and academics to help us explore these questions. This session will consider how we envision the relationship between housework, Black motherhood, and sex work, exploring the ambivalence between the amount of care and performativity they require, and the gender and racial violence frequently involved. Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Juniper Fleming, and Nydia Blas will help us to consider how mixed media contemporary art represents the exploitation of “women’s” labor and how it constitutes a way of liberating new social forces and political imaginaries.
Artists Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Juniper Fleming and Nydia Blas will be in conversation with Jennifer Nash (Jean Fox O’Barr Professor Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies, Duke University) and Anna Storti (Assistant Professor Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies, Duke University).
