"What Women Want" is an exploration of what women desire out of life, personally, socially, and politically. This multimedia art exhibition is linked thematically to San Diego REPertory Theatre's presentation of "In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play," March 19-April 17 on the Lyceum Stage. This comedy by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Sam Woodhouse, is about the politics of desire and sexuality, and is set in the Victorian Era.

A special panel discussion with the artists and other women art professionals will be moderated by Robert Pincus on April 10. Topics will include the place of women in the local arts scene, what motivates women artists, and the how politics and gender are linked in current arts practices.

FIG, Feminist Image Group (formerly known as the San Diego Women's Figurative Group), was formed in 2009. FIG is a loose coalition of artists who meet to discuss art, see exhibitions, and support one another in our careers.

As artists, we are concerned about how women continue to be portrayed in the art world. As teachers, professionals, and feminists, we encourage our students and colleagues to be alert to sexism in its many forms. We promote an inclusive worldview that allows all voices. As friends, we aid each other in our creative and curatorial endeavors. "What Women Want" is our fourth group exhibition.

Event Description
The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to present an exhibition by 2010 San Diego Art Prize recipients Einar and Jamex de la Torre with emerging artist Julio Orozco, from April 2 through May 7, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Friday, April 1, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library located at 1008 Wall Street, La Jolla, CA 92037.

Presented by the San Diego Visual Arts Network, the San Diego Art Prize is awarded to several established and emerging San Diego artists whose achievements in the field of visual arts merit recognition. Each season, winning artists receive exhibition opportunities, a cash prize, and are asked to select an emerging artist to share the spotlight.

Mexican-born artists Einar and Jamex de la Torre are brothers and artistic collaborators, who moved to the United States from Guadalajara, Jalisco in the early 1970s. Their artistic collaboration began in earnest in the late 1980's with small mix-media works. In the late 1990s, they began to do large-scale sculptural installations, eventually branching out into commissioned site-specific and public art projects. The brothers live and work on both sides of the San Diego-Baja California border, enjoying a bi-national life style that very much informs their art.
Julio Orozco began as a documentary photographer in 1992. Working for a daily newspaper on the police beat gave him a unique opportunity to portray crime scenes and develop a visual ability to communicate facts, which he later applied to his creative work. Issues are raised of nostalgia, historiography and cultural identity. The experimental works are rendered by the appropriation of historical documents, objects, sounds and images to establish new connections between memory and fiction, past and future as a reflection on cinema.

Event Description The Fourth Annual UCSD Visual Arts Graduate Student Conference will be on Friday, April 1, with talks revolving around the theme of the body and self. The notion of the self and the body as either separate or contained entities has challenged philosophers for centuries. From Descartes to Deleuze, theorists have struggled to determine how these fundamental aspects of human identity are related. The conference will include a keynote address by Professor Amelia Jones, the Grierson Chair in Visual Culture and Graduate Program Director of Art History & Communication Studies at McGill University. Jones has organized exhibitions on contemporary art and on feminism, queer, and anti-racist approaches to visual culture. Her recent publications include major essays on Marina Abramović (in TDR), on feminist art and curating, and on performance art histories, as well as the edited volumes Feminism and Visual Culture Reader (2003; new edition 2010) and A Companion to Contemporary Art Since 1945 (2006). Following on her Body Art/Performing the Subject (1998), Jones's single-authored books include Irrational Modernism: A Neurasthenic History of New York Dada (2004) and Self Image: Technology, Representation, and the Contemporary Subject (2006). Her current projects are an edited volume Perform, Repeat, Record: Live Art in History (with co-editor Adrian Heathfield; Routledge Press, 2011) and a book tentatively entitled Seeing Differently: Identification and the Visual Arts.
