Building on the first session of Dismantling the Gaze, where the history of gendered tropes and stereotypes throughout the history of visual culture was presented; this session brings together artists Leah Schrager and Rafia Santana to discuss the tradition of subverting those hierarchies through a look at the artistic strategies highlighted in the ICP Museum’s exhibition Multiply, Identify, Her.
This is a free event, but please register in advance. ICP Members have access to preferred seating in our reserved members’ section.
The ICP Museum–public program combination ticket grants $10 entry starting at 4:30 PM to those attending the program. Tickets are only available online when you register for the program.
Leah Schrager is an artist who works between the web and NYC. In her work she photographs, appears in, augments, and markets her own image. She’s interested in the line, movement, biography, and digital life of the female body. In 2010 she founded a new form of therapy as Sarah White, The Naked Therapist. She also co-curated the female-positive BodyAnxiety.com exhibition, which is featured in the April 2015 issue of Art Forum. After graduating in 2015 with an MFA in Fine Art from Parsons, The New School, she launched a celebrity-as-art-practice project called ONA. Making herself a real world celebrity has so far involved the creation and growth of her Instagram account, which has over 2 Million followers, the release of her debut album, going on tour, and the planned release of her documentary film, “Instagram Famous.”
