EFA Project Space presents CURRICULUM: spaces of learning and unlearning, an exhibition that reimagines collective study outside of cultural institutions and creates pathways for resistance by asking the questions: What would a curriculum for collective study and political action look and feel like? Can simply being present together be a form of learning, a way of transforming one another? What is recuperable from decades past? What can we do that we have not yet done?

I have been dreaming of this conference since I wrote "Big Fun Rape Festival" on the wall of my studio in 2014. Now it's here and Jasmine Wahi and I have been working on it for a year. It's called Rape, Representation and Radicality.

It is a daylong symposium/day of panels about sex, power and justice, who has power and why, and the hidden legacy of women of color in the conversations about sexual violence. There are so many powerful people making this happen, look at them below, I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share the work of women artists, curators, academics and activists I so admire.
