10:00am Panel: Still They Persist, with FemFour
As part of the FotoFocus Second Century: Photography, Feminism, Politics Symposium.

Moderated by Steven Matijcio, Curator, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, with Cincinnati-based FemFour panelists: Sara M. Vance Waddell, FemFour Founder and Collector; Cal Cullen, Artist, Curator and Executive Director, Wave Pool; Jaime Thompson, Curator of Education, Contemporary Arts Center; and Maria Seda-Reeder, Writer, Curator, Educator.

FemFour, a group of socially minded members of the Cincinnati arts community, has assembled a traveling archive of posters and placards, sculptures, textiles, and photo/video documentation from the Women's March of 2017. This continually evolving archive, which will be on view at the Contemporary Arts Center during the symposium, attempts to keep alive a message of ongoing resistance. FemFour will be discussing their motivations and their process as part of this undertaking, as well as examining the nature of politically activated objects, their preservation and circulation.

FotoFocus Presents Second Century: Photography, Feminism, Politics, a free, one-day symposium featuring diverse speakers addressing a range of topics revolving around feminist approaches to photography and lens-based art in today’s socio-political climate.

Free and open to the public, this symposium will include panel discussions throughout the day and is designed to be flexible, allowing people to attend all day or the panel of their choice. All seating is based on first-come-first-served availability. More information is available
