The Department of Art and Art History is hosting Amelia Jones as she presents the VAS2 lecture, titled "Essentialism, Feminism, and Art: Spaces where Woman 'Oozes Away,'” on Feb. 20 from 5 p.m.-6:15 p.m. in 005 Biggin Hall. This lecture is free and open to the public.

Jones is the Robert A. Day Professor in Art and Design and vice dean of critical studies at the Roski School of Art and Design at University of Southern California. She is known for her work to dismantle the sexist, racist and homophobic structure of the art world and seeks to elaborate a queer, anti-racist, feminist history and theory of modern and contemporary Euro-American visual arts. To that end, she is revising the art history curriculum at USC, and recent publications explore the work of artists previously marginalized from art discourse and institutions. Her current research examines the intersections of "queer," "feminist," and "performance" in the visual arts.
