Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011

Parsons The New School for Design presents GENDER PLAY, a two-day conference taking place on March 28 and 29 at The New School that will explore the issue of gender and its impact and influence on the production of art and design. The conference will feature the insights of an international mix of artists, designers, researchers, and scholars in the field, including curator Paola Antonelli of the Museum of Modern Art, designer Laurene Leon Boym of Boym Partners, and the acclaimed artist Ernesto Pujol. The conference will also serve as the platform for the launch of the international Gender Design Network (iGDN), a new initiative aimed at connecting designers and artists around this topic.

The second day of the conference will focus on artists, writers and theorists who will address some of the major theoretical and political debates that have marked crucial issues, from second wave feminism to postcolonial influences and queer theory. They will discuss major works of art in painting, installation, sculpture and video and performance art, as well as international artists and collaborators associated with these debates.
