On September 7, 2022 the National Trust for Historic Preservation hosted the second of three events celebrating "Women's Work." This event "Women’s Work: Beatrice Glow, Daisy Quezada Ureña, Nafis M. White in Conversation with Rebecca Hart" was developed by the National Trust’s Where Women Made History program in conjunction with the “Women’s Work” exhibition at Lyndhurst—a National Trust Historic Site located in Tarrytown, New York.
How do contemporary women artists draw on personal histories and cultural heritage to create a unique body of work? Independent curator Rebecca Hart leads a panel discussion with three contemporary artists who are featured in Lyndhurst’s “Women’s Work” exhibition. Beatrice Glow, Daisy Quezada Ureña, and Nafis M. White each use their artistic vision to address complex social and political issues that include migration, colonialization, gender and racial discrimination, and cultural identity.
Using a wide range of different media and sensory experiences, each artist explores identity, community, and the power of resilience in their vast body of work, community activism, and teaching. Rebecca Hart will engage these artists in conversation about their chosen methodologies and the ways in which they examine their role as artists within the historical context of artistic practice.
