Material Decisions: Women, Process, and Form
This talk looks at the post-war history and women and abstract sculpture.

Jenni Sorkin is Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art History at University of California, Santa Barbara. She holds a PhD in the History of Art from Yale University. She writes on the intersection between gender, craft, material culture, and contemporary art. Most recently, she co-curated, with Paul Schimmel, Revolution in the
Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947-2016, the inaugural exhibition at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel in Los Angeles, which closed in September 2016. She recently published her first book, Live Form: Women, Ceramics and Community (The University of Chicago Press, 2016), which examines gender and post-war ceramics practice at Black Mountain College and other utopian communities.
