Artist Talk: Martha Wilson, Fall 2015

Martha Wilson, a pioneering feminist artist who over the past four decades has created innovative photographic and video works that explore her female subjectivity through role-playing, costume transformations, and “invasions” of other people’s personae, spoke at the Einstein Auditorium at NYU, earlier this month. Wilson is also the Founding Director of Franklin Furnace whose mission is to present, preserve, interpret, proselytize and advocate on behalf of avant-garde art, especially forms that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect, their ephemeral nature, or politically unpopular content. At this inspiring talk, Wilson presented 4 decades of personal work and projects from Franklin Furnace’s first 30 years.
