"Swimming Against the Tide: Challenges, Misadventures and Lessons Learned in Four Decades as a Feminist/Artist/ Educator"

Honored Educator, Barbara Jo Revelle

Saturday, March 11 - 11:00AM to 11:45AM
Orange EF

In this multi-media presentation—a hybrid of stories, video-clips, slides and performance—I will examine a problem many of us face: How to be an authentic, passionate artist, true to one’s own vision, and at the same time be an inspiring, responsible educator? I have been censored many times for my art projects, and asked repeatedly to defend my unconventional, provocative teaching practices. In this talk I will explain and illustrate my ideas about how to collapse distinctions and survive as a disruptive artist while teaching in an institution.
