Event Details

The Fist: Notes on an Athletic Gesture 

Jennifer Doyle is the author of Hold It Against Me: Difficulty and Emotion in Contemporary Art (Duke, 2013) and Sex Objects: Art and the Dialectics of Desire (University of Minnesota, 2006). She explores athletic, physical, and sporting practices in contemporary art, and contrasts the access they give us to languages of struggle and flight with other ways of being and moving through the world. Doyle is Professor of English at University of California, Riverside, and a 2013–14 Fulbright Distinguished Chair at the Center for Research on Transnational Art, Identity, and Nation at the University of the Arts, London. In 2012, she was awarded a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant in support of her current writing about "the athletic turn." Doyle is on the Board of Directors at Human Resources Los Angeles, and is the author of the blog, The Sport Spectacle, focusing on the art and politics of sports stories, images, and performance.
