I Like Feminism and Feminism Likes me || Oskar Korsár

March 12 – May 9, 2020
Performance: Tuesday March 10, 3pm
Opening reception: Thursday March 12, 2020, 5-7pm

I like feminism and feminism likes me with Swedish artist Oskar Korsár is a discussion forum, a performance featuring CSI students, and an exhibition in the Art Gallery of the College of Staten Island. Presenting a carnivalesque series of objects, drawings, and actions, the project reimagines a 1974 encounter—a clash—between the charismatic German artist Joseph Beuys and a group of 32 feminist artists, curators, and critics over breakfast at the Stanhope Hotel.

Mission Statement for the Gallery of the College of Staten Island

The Gallery of the College of Staten Island is dedicated to presenting a rich diversity of professional artistic practice by both contemporary and historical artists. Through high quality exhibitions and related events, the gallery strives to introduce and engage the college community and the wider New York public to a global breadth of creative output. Our programing serves as a springboard for introducing a broad range of issues including, but not limited to, personal, intercultural, social, historical, scientific, health-related, economic, political, and transnational subjects. We aim to use the visual and interdisciplinary arts to facilitate difficult discussions about new ideas while fostering curiosity, developing critical thinking and encouraging a respectful understanding of divergent points of view and experiences. Exhibitions and related events seek to enrich our students and the diverse communities they come as well as the college community as a whole, making connections across the educational divisions and schools through the unique communicative power of the visual and interdisciplinary arts. 

Exhibitions are curated by members of the faculty with an expertise in the visual arts. The curatorial position rotates annually. An advisory committee of faculty and staff oversees the programming.
