The Feminist says
Public Functionary is pleased to share the continuation of Season 4 exhibitions...

The Feminist is a snapshot of DC based artist, Charles Philippe Jean Pierre’s examination of contemporary literature, feminism, privilege, and power. As the artist navigates questions of race, gender and equality, he explores what it means be a feminist as a black man in American culture.

Jean Pierre is a Haitian American artist originally from the South side of Chicago, IL. He currently lives and works in Washington DC, with a studio at the well known 52 O Street Studios. The Feminist is curated by Jovan C. Speller, the newest addition to the PF team.

Following the opening reception, Public Functionary will host Disrobing Masculinity: An Artist Talk and Discussion on November 19, 2016 at 1pm.

The conversation moderated by Tricia Heuring, Director/Curator for Public Functionary, features artist Charles Philippe Jean Pierre; Jovan C. Speller, curator for The Feminist; Nicole Nfonoyim-Hara, writer and anthropologist; and Malanda Jean-Claude, poet and author of Because of a Woman.

Opening Celebration– Friday, Nov 18 7pm-12am. Free.
Disrobing Masculinity-- Saturday, Nov 19. 1pm. Free.
The Feminist runs Nov 18 - Dec 4.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
