Artist Talk: Barbara Nessim: “From There to Here”

Sunday, February 9, 2014

2–2 pm

Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor

Artist and illustrator Barbara Nessim addresses gender identity, body ideals, and desire in her work and was a pioneer in using computer technology to make art.



In this talk she traces her journey from growing up in the Bronx to merging fine and commercial art with her conceptual illustrations and exhibiting at major museums. 



Nessim discusses the Model Project, a collaborative collage series with fashion photographer Karl Rudisill; Chronicles of Beauty, which combines photographs of Greco-Roman busts with popular imagery;  and her 1991 interactive installation that produced one-of-a-kind mini-books, among other topics.
