4. The New York Times Feminist Reading Group

Whitney Museum of American Art presents “The New York Times Feminist Reading Group” on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The event will take place on floor three, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center, Hearst Artspace.

On the occasion of the historic 2016 U.S. presidential election, artists Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden perform their ongoing project “The New York Times Feminist Reading Group,” which is dedicated to reading the day’s issue of The New York Times from a feminist perspective. This project combines different models of feminist gatherings, including consciousness-raising groups of the 1960s and 70s activism, academic seminar formats, and socially oriented book-clubs most often convened in the hosts’ domestic spaces. Because current events are a fluid and changing subject matter, each performance differs dramatically, shaped as well by the political positions of the participants in the room.

Free with museum admission. Whitney Museum is located at 99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014. www.whitney.org.

5. Bread and Roses: A Dinner-Symposium on Women and the Arts at MoMA PS1

MoMA PS1 presents “Bread and Roses: A Dinner-Symposium on Women and the Arts” on Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.

“Bread and Roses” brings together a multigenerational mix of female-identifying artists, writers, and others to exchange ideas about women in the arts over food and drink. Hosted by MoMA PS1 with Negar Azimi, Pati Hertling, Mina Stone and Anicka Yi, the event features a dinner provided by Lil’ Deb’s Oasis, and toasts from Hannah Black, Justin Vivian Bond, Kimberly Drew, Eileen Myles, Alice Waters and others. Drawing upon the Hellenic custom of the symposium (from the Greek sympinein “to drink together”) in which the ancients gathered amid feast, song, and dance to discourse on philosophical questions, this program combines serious discussion with celebration—out of the belief that debate, collectivity, and activism are produced by mind and body alike.

Tickets are $35 and $32 for museum members. MoMA PS1 is located at 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101. www.momaps1.org.
