The Department of Art and Art History's Studio Lecture Series presents Lorena Wolffer.
For over twenty years, the work produced by artist and cultural activist Lorena Wolffer (Mexico City, 1971) has been an ongoing site for enunciation and resistance at the intersection of art, activism, and feminism. While her own work addresses issues related to the cultural fabrication of gender, and advocates for the rights, agency, and voices of women and non-normative individuals, she has also produced, facilitated, and curated dozens of projects with artists in museums, public spaces, and television. From creating radical cultural interventions with communities, to pioneering pedagogical models for the collective development of situated knowledge, these projects are produced within an inventive arena that underlines the pertinence of experimental languages and displaces the border between so-called high and low culture.Her work—a stage for the voices, representations, and narratives of others—articulates cultural practices based on respect and equality.
