Artist presentation by Audrey Chan (dressed as Judy Chicago) at “Still Doin’ It: Fanning the Flames of the Woman’s Building” at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles on October 16, 2011. The symposium/convening/reunion offered a dialogue between feminist artists then and now. Featured artists included: Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Susan E. King, Suzanne Lacy, Audrey Chan, Onya Hogan-Finlay, and Elana Mann.

The event coincided with the exhibition “Doin’ It In Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman’s Building”, part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time initiative (pacificstandardtime.org).
