Girls, Women, Sisters by Guy Gabon | Film screening & Talks

Film screening, talks and performances by Guy Gabon, visual artist and filmmaker

Clark Atlanta University Art Museum (CAUAM) Artist-in-residence Guy Gabon will present a series of events that provide insight into her artistic production and conceptual practice. Gabon will perform an experimental work inspired by Alain Foix’s play Pas de Prison Pour le Vent (No Prison for the Wind). It will be followed by talks with Alain Foix, writer, philosopher, artistic director, critic, and author of numerous and short essays, notably on art and performance.

Guy Gabon’s film Mauvais Genre (Bad Gender), which questions the relationship between first names and gendered identities, will be screened and discussed at Alliance Française.

She will host a workshop at CAUAM on work-in-progress projects drawing links to Clark University’s historic collection of African-American fine art, the city of Atlanta, and women in the American and Global South.

This event is co-organized by the Cultural services of the French Embassy in the United States, CAUAM, Georgia Tech DramaTech Theatre, Georgia Tech Modern Languages, Alliance Française at Atlanta, Quai des Arts and Fence.
