Event description

Description

Dr. Deborah J. Johnson, Professor of Art History and Women’s Studies at Providence College, will explore the benefits and complexities of presenting exhibitions of all women artists.

Dr. Deborah Johnson received her Ph.D. in Art History from Brown University and is Full Professor of Art History and Women’s Studies at Providence College, where she specializes in 20th and 21st century material culture, especially since 1945. A founding member and former Director of the Women's Studies Department, she also teaches regularly in the Black Studies Program and the American Studies Program. Prior to her arrival at Providence College, she worked for over a decade as a museum curator and administrator, and in 2006-07, she was appointed Manager of Public Art for the State of Rhode Island through which she directed the federal program, 1% for Art. She is widely published, and her co-authored book, Women Making Art: Women in the Visual, Literary, and Performing Arts Since 1960 (with Dr. Wendy Oliver, Peter Lang, Inc., 2001) remains a standard source in the field of interdisciplinary feminist cultural studies.
