Artist's Public Lecture at Douglass Library

“Refocusing the Frame: Making the Invisible Visible” will be the focus of a talk by artist Clarissa T. Sligh on Wednesday April 5th, at 7:30 pm, in the mezzanine of Mabel Smith Douglass Library.

Clarissa T. Sligh's exhibit, "Anatomically Correct," is currently on display, through April 10th, at Douglass Library as part of the 1999-2000 Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series. "Anatomically Correct" functions as a photo-documentary journal of one woman's gender transformation. Sligh uses "the photographic image to reframe concepts of identity and its relationship to the historical and power relations in which representations of race, class, and gender are rooted."

The public lecture is cosponsored by the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series and the 30th Anniversary Celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride and Activism at Rutgers committee. For more information on this event, please contact series curator Ferris Olin by email at olin@rci.rutgers.edu or by phone at 732/932-9407, ex. 26.
