Martha Wilson is a pioneering feminist artist and gallery director, who over the past four decades created innovative photographic and video works that explore her female subjectivity. She has been described by New York Times critic Holland Cotter as one of “the half-dozen most important people for art in downtown Manhattan in the 1970s.” In 1976 she founded Franklin Furnace, an artist-run space that champions the exploration, promotion and preservation of artist books, temporary installation, performance art, as well as online works. She is represented by P.P.O.W Gallery in New York.
Martha Wilson is invited to present work at After the Fact, a one day symposium examining the place and potential of The Event. Candidates from the ICP-Bard MFA program will host the symposium on December 12th at ICP School (1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street, NY, NY 10036). It is free and open to the public.
