Performative Lecture
Visual Arts Presentation Lab, SME 149

From 1973 to 1975, Susan Mogul was an active member of the Feminist Studio Workshop at the Woman’s Building in Los Angeles. Two years later, she became a student in the Visual Arts Department at UC San Diego in order to get her Master of Fine Arts degree. How did Mogul negotiate her radical feminist alternative education, with a university art department comprised almost exclusively of male art professors? Mogul reflects on this question and interjects anecdotes about mentors Judy Chicago and David Antin, all the while placing her body of work at the intersection of art and life.

Susan Mogul will be visiting UC San Diego as part of the Provoking Change exhibition celebrating Visual Arts @ 50.
