Getting Personal with the Patriarchy Artist’s Talk with MJ Sharp

Wednesday, October 29, 7 p.m.
Center for Documentary Studies Auditorium, 1317 W. Pettigrew St., Durham, North Carolina (Map)
In this half-hour artist talk, MJ Sharp reviews her artistic output of nearly 30 years to discover the subtle thread of reckoning with the patriarchy that runs through it all. MJ will explore how photography, with its inherent ambiguity, softens what would normally be a screed into a more nuanced and layered critique. Meet MJ Sharp, CDS Undergraduate Education Director Christopher Sims, and students from CDS and the Duke Union for Media and Arts student group (DUMA), who will be on hand to provide information about their respective programs. Cobbler will also be served.
