Co-Chairs: Susan Bee (Pratt Institute; University of Pennsylvania) and Mira Schor (Parsons, The New School)

Panelists: Joyce Kozloff (Independent Artist) Sheila Pepe (Pratt Institute), Kara Rooney (Independent Artist, The Brooklyn Rail), Alexandria Smith (Independent Artist).

This panel will focus on Susan Bee and Mira Schor's 29-year collaborative editorial project M/E/A/N/I/N/G-the journal started in 1986 and continues to the present as M/E/A/N/I/N/G Online. It will emphasize the artists' individual roots in 1970s feminism and social activism, the cultural conditions in the 1980s-both in terms of feminism and in art discourse-that led to the founding of M/E/A/N/I/N/G, the influence of its small-scale publication on many other journals both small and mainstream, and the community of artists that was created by the work.
