Artist Mira Schor joins visual culture theorist Charlotte Kent for a conversation. We conclude with a poetry reading from Rachel Blau DuPlessis.

Mira Schor

Mira Schor
Working at the intersection of politics and theory, Mira Schor is an artist noted for her contributions to feminist art history. Her works center on the representation of language in drawing and painting, and her current work focuses on the experience of living in a moment of radical inequality, austerity, and accelerated time, set against the powerful pull of older notions of time, craft, and visual pleasure. Her work has been widely exhibited, including at the Hammer Museum, P.S.1, The Neuberger Museum, The Jewish Museum, and The Aldrich Museum. She is the recipient of awards from the Guggenheim, Rockefeller, Marie Walsh Sharpe, and Pollock-Krasner Foundations, as well as the College Art Association’s Frank Jewett Mather Award in Art Criticism.
