Outdoor Artist Talk with Cristina Biaggi in collaboration with RoCA and SuffrageForward
Rockland Center for the Arts is celebrating Women and the Women’s Movement. In partnership with SuffrageForward, there will be a free artist talk on Sunday, Oct. 18th at 2:00pm with artist, Cristina Biaggi on her historic installation: The WEB. The talk will take place in The Catherine Konner Sculpture Park, space is limited and reservations are required. Masks and social distancing are also required.
The WEB represents the culmination of a period of intense activism – demonstrations, marches, actions, periods spent in Women’s encampments for peace and justice during the seventies and eighties. The WEB is an outdoor installation with a double sided black and white collage on cloth consisting of 15 panels connected by red rope (our collective blood) depicting women’s political actions throughout the ages and throughout the world. In this talk, Cristina Biaggi will describe, and deeply enter into, her creative process both technically and content-wise.
This outdoor sculpture exhibition is a collaboration between SuffrageForward and the Rockland Center for the Arts. SuffrageForward’s mission is not only to celebrate women’s right to vote, but to empower women now and in the future, and to create awareness among all people of the strength and resiliency of girls and women.
