As a kid, I witnessed my mother/grandmother/greatgrandmother/lady neighbor all packing their houses/closets/offices with stuff. This need to collect has been a consistent point of tension between my mother and I – forever. Are women’s collections important or different? Why collect at all?
We are excited to have Dr. Barlow in the house – all the way from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Barlow is a fim and video historian concentrated on the work of women film and videographers. Currently, she is writing a memoir focusing on film, female identity and art collecting titled My Museum, and her book Lost Objects of Desire: Video Installation, Mary Lucier, and the Romance of History, is forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press.
7pm sharp at the gallery. Don’t miss out.
