Heather Hicks:Sexual Abuse/The Violence Of Gender Norms

November 6th, 2006     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

If you’re in Toronto this week you might want to check out a lunchtime lecture with Heather Hicks at The University of Toronto. I had the fortunate experience of participating in a Book Making Workshop led by Heather earlier this year and find her and her work to be both relevant and accessible.

The details are below: Brown Bag Lecture by Heather Hicks Sexual Abuse/The Violence Of Gender Norms Wednesday, November 8 At Noon 252 Bloor Street West (OISE/UT) 2nd Floor, Room 2-227 Heather Hicks will be presenting an annotated slide talk that will illustrate a discussion of her recent visual work and previous projects that are relevant to its development. She will speak about the importance of process work and writing in the development of her visual imagery and particularly, the role that the integration of text into visual media has played in negotiating healing and issues of identity that relate to experiences of sexual abuse.

Admission is free! All welcome!
