Walls and Bridges Season 4: The Naked Truth

6:30 p.m.

What is particular about women's depiction of sex and sexuality? Why are these portrayals held to different social and aesthetic standards than those by men? Moderated by Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be, fiction writer Lynne Tillman, performer and writer Wendy Delorme, writer and translator Emilie Notéris, and fiction writer Chris Kraus will consider the nature and precise limits of the double standard. They will chart how it informs both the creation and reception of their art.

This event is presented as part of “Walls and Bridges,” an arts and ideas series curated by the Villa Gillet, a French cultural institute interested in thought in all its expressions, bringing together thinkers and artists from all over the world. Curated by Villa gillet (Director: Guy Walter), and supported by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, Walls and Bridges is a 10-day series of performances and critical explorations uniting French and American thinkers and artists from social sciences, philosophy, literature and live arts.
