Plains Art Museum: Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon

Plains Art Museum: Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were women. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of representation from women.

Stop by Plains Art Museum to try your hand (mind) at a variety of “games” developed by Surrealists in the early 20th Century. From Exquisite Corpse to automatic drawing to collage, you're invited to drop in and reassemble reality. Artistic skills are not necessary to participate – all you need is your creativity. All art and writing utensils will be provided and a cash bar will be open.

Plains Art Museum Film and Surrealism Seminar

The Museum will also host a Film and Surrealism seminar. Philosophy for All, along with Richard Gilmore, will present the free philosophical discussion, Film and Surrealism. Surrealism is a part of what Horkheimer and Adorno call “the Dialectic of Enlightenment.” The Dialectic of Enlightenment identifies and explores the dark side of the Enlightenment and scientific “advancements.” One form that the reaction to the Enlightenment, as a privileging of the rational over the irrational, took was a celebration of irrationality.
