Join us for a conversation on the intersection of creative process and legal rights to abortion access in the United States. This program is presented as part of the Spatializing Reproductive Justice exhibition at the Center for Architecture, on view through September 3, 2024.

As access to reproductive healthcare varies from state to state, advocacy groups, practitioners, and individuals are engaging in ways to creatively provide care. A conversation between the transdisciplinary art group How to perform an abortion and Andrew Beck, a lawyer from the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, will highlight the ways in which artistic expression and legal action can address our access to abortions and women's healthcare.

Speakers: 
Kadambari Baxi,
architect and educator, How to perform an abortion; Professor of Practice, Barnard College
Maureen Connor, Artist and Activist, How to perform an abortion; Emerita Professor of Art, Queens College
Landon Newton, Artist and Horticulturist, How to perform an abortion
Andrew Beck, ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project

Moderators:
Lindsay Harkema, Curator, Spatializing Reproductive Justice; Founder, WIP: Work in Progress – Women in Practice; Professor, Spitzer School of Architecture, City College of New York
Lori Brown, Curator, Spatializing Reproductive Justice; Co-founder, ARCHITEXX; Professor, Syracuse University
