Julia Bryan-Wilson is a Professor of Contemporary Art and LGBTQ+ Studies at the Department of Art History and Archaeology and the Institute for the Study of Sexuality and Gender at Columbia University. She is the Curator-at-Large, at Museu de Arte de São Paulo.

Vivian Crockett is a curator at the New Museum in New York and a Brazilian-American scholar focusing mainly on modern and contemporary art of African diasporas, Latinx diasporas, and the Americas at the varied intersections of race, gender, and queer theory.
Dissident Practices: Brazilian Women Artists, 1960s-2020s, explores how artists responded to social change. Although many of them in the 1960s and 1970s disavowed the term feminism, they still employed feminist strategies.
Please register to attend and we look forward to seeing you at the event and engaging in an insightful conversation about the power of art in challenging societal norms and promoting social justice.
