Join us for Then & Now: Gender Identity in Art and Media at 7pm on July 7, 2016 at Engine.
The evening will include a short presentation by Jessica Roscio, Kristin Lindsley, and Nancy Grace Horton, followed by a facilitated Q&A with Donna McNeil, curatorial consultant.
Jessica Roscio is the curator at the Danforth Art Museum\School in Framingham, Mass. and has studied historical representations of gender identity in late 19th c. art, primarily photography, and how this relates to contemporary work.
Kristin Lindsley is an Assistant Lecturer at the University of New England, Biddeford. Lindsley will discuss representations of gender in contemporary media, including video games, and what we know about the effects of these representation on audiences.
Nancy Grace Horton is a photographer and educator based in Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, Maine. “That’s What She Said,” a body of work examining gender identity by Horton, is currently on display at Engine.
