FICTION DICTION: LUCY LIPPARD

Presented at:
Hallwalls

Lucy Lippard, distinguished art critic and fiction writer, reads from PROPAGANDA FICTIONS. [NOTE: While the documentation indicates the title of Lippard's work was "Propaganda Fictions," it might well be a working title for "Some Propaganda for Propaganda" an essay that appeared in the No.9 Issue of the journal HERESIES: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics, entitled "Women Organized/Divided" which was published in 1980 and featured writing by Barbara Ehrenreich, Harmony Hammond, Leslie Labowitz, Grace Paley, and Adrienne Rich.  Audo documentation of this talk exists in the Hallwalls archive at the Poetry Collection, a special collection of the State University of New York at Buffalo Libraries.]

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
