This should be a great conversation: "What happens when issues of expression and privacy collide?"
This is a conflict that arises with surprising regularity lately, and here's a chance to step back and consider it outside the bounds of any one specific example. But for prompts, consider the case of the nipple print, removed from the exhibition at Cornish last year. Or the case of Charles Krafft.
"What are the responsibilities of the artist, audience, and institution towards exhibiting artwork in public? Who gets to decide?"
The creators of this event are the fiery, caring Seattle artists Mary Ann Peters and C. Davida Ingram, and they'll be moderating but they'll be looking for plenty of input—they won't just be there to hear themselves talk. Admission is free and open, and the event starts at 6 pm on the 7th floor at Cornish. See you there.
