CAN ART CHANGE THE BRAIN? Artist-activist, Linda Stein (the 2016 National Association of Women Artists Honoree for Commitment to Arts and Culture) states: “My goal as an artist is to use my art to transform social consciousness and promote activism for gender justice and diversity. With my androgynous wearable sculpture, I invite the viewer to seek this diversity in unpredictable ways, to ‘try on’ new personal avatars and self-definitions, knowing that every new experience changes the brain’s structure and inspires each of us toward a more authentic and heroic self.” Stein is a dynamic, inspirational speaker. She enthusiastically welcomes art teachers to her Tribeca studio gallery for a tour and conversation about her work. Participants will also engage in a Find Card activity. Find Cards is a differential learning and assessment strategy that Keifer-Boyd developed for teaching mixed age groups from five-year-olds to elders in a gallery setting. She has adapted Find Cards for engaging with art exhibitions online as well. Teams prepare Find Cards through dialogue about Linda Stein’s art in her studio-gallery, and experience three phases of Find Cards for implementing in their teaching. Four exhibition catalogues and refreshments, gratis!
NAEA Women’s Caucus Lobby Activism 2017
Entangle gender identities and expressions with Linda Stein!
Thursday, March 2, 10-11 a.m.
Sheraton Hotel Lobby
811 7th Ave. 53rd St.
New York, NY 10019
(Look for the Women’s Caucus Lobby Activism banner)
Entangling gender expression through play and performance is critical to the work of artist Linda Stein. In our everyday lives, we entangle gender expressions that confront the social and political forces which cause us to be inauthentic to ourselves and others. We have to don armor that protects us from adopting false values, against letting go of our own
spiritual and personal freedoms, alongside uncertainties and fears that stem from the extraordinary to the mundane– political elections, military conflict, and the everyday witnessing of bullying and bigotry. Anxiety and ease are entangled simultaneously.
At the 2017 NAEA Lobby Activism event, wearing Stein’s sculpture while in the company of other art educator activists is an opportunity for play, rejuvenation and empowerment. Come and body-swap with a Stein sculpture. Take on another persona, a different armor, dance, move, speak out!
