In conjunction with the exhibition "The Intersectional Self," the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation is pleased to present "Martha Wilson: Activist History Teach-in."


Performance artist Martha Wilson, founder of Franklin Furnace, will lead a “teach-in” with a selection of activist artists from the 1960’s to the present, looking at the history of performance art as protest to consider which methods and strategies remain effective in today’s political climate. Wilson, known for her political drag performances as first ladies Barbara Bush and Nancy Reagan, will perform her recent work “Martha Does Donald,” in which she impersonates Donald Trump. In addition, the event will include presentations by artists Ann Agee, Todd Ayoung (REPOhistory), Alicia Grullón (Percent for Green), Katherine Perk, Lise Solskolne (W.A.G.E.), and Barbara Zucker (A.I.R. Gallery), among others.
