Panel Discussion: Heinecken and Feminism

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: Free, available on first-come first-served basis 1 hour before event.

“Heralded as a feminist and denounced as misogynist, Robert Heinecken is a complex figure whose art raises urgent questions about the representation of women in a media saturated world. His use of found pornographic materials and images of female bodies taken from magazines, newspapers, and other found sources was, and still is, hotly debated among artists, scholars, and curators.¬†This panel, held in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter, will explore the various ways in which Heinecken’s work has been read, and continues to be relevant, in the dialogue about representations of women and gender in art.

Eva Respini, curator, Department of Photography, MoMA, moderates the panel discussion with A. L. Steiner, artist and visiting assistant professor and MFA program director at USC; Luke Batten, director, Robert Heinecken Trust; Richard Meyer, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History, Stanford University; and Rebecca Morse, associate curator, Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, Los Angeles County Museum of Art.”

This event is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter, on view until January 18, 2015.
