Artist Talk: Rebekah Modrak from "A Day's Work" at the Cohen Gallery
(4:30 PM - 5:30 PM)
- Attachment 1: poster
Rebekah Modrak (Class of ‘92) will speak about her work and the exhibition, “A Day’s Work” at the Cohen Gallery, on Tuesday, April 4th, 4:30pm, in Binns 106.
Rebekah’s installation at Cohen, Re Made Co., is a multimedia artistic intervention satirizing the brand narrative of Best Made Co., a New York City-based company that sells painted axes and a range of “outdoor” consumer products using calculated and false associations with manual labor. Evolving since its launch in July 2013, Re Made Co. works across genres, including Fluxus art whose distribution channels circumvent and subvert the gallery system; critical design that challenges the values of design practice; and activist art or “culture jamming” that attempts to introduce a critical discourse into passive consumption.
Re Made Co. at Cohen Gallery will create a storefront space on Main Street in Alfred with both the products and the critique of luxury consumer culture that seeks to appropriate the work of labor.

World renowned activist and Rutgers professor Charlotte Bunch will discuss April 4 how she has helped advance global women's rights and the challenges ahead, including fighting the backlash against feminism in the U.S. and abroad.
Bunch, engaged in the `60s civil rights, anti-war, and gay rights movements, works via a feminist human rights framework. She will explain this framework, how the United Nations fits in, and how feminism continues to influence international human rights concepts and strategies.
The Women's and Gender Studies lecture is free, with delicious food and conversation to follow.
