April 25, 2018, JERSEY CITY, N.J. — The Hudson County Community College’s (HCCC) Department of Cultural Affairs is proud to host a panel discussion with the artists that participated in the 2018 Wonder Women Project presented by _gaia.

 

The Wonder Women Residency Project’s mission is to engage underrepresented artists who are eager to participate in a collective dialogue about agency, gender, art and social change. This year’s Wonder Women Project “Eye of the Storm” was organized and curated by Doris Caçoilo and Eileen Ferara. Artists participating in the eleventh edition of the residency project met at the Dineen Hull Gallery, from January 28 through March 4, to explore the ever more crucial issues of climate change and current environmental challenges. Women have always been at the forefront of the fight to achieve environmental protection policies, shifting the narratives most crucial to affecting this progress. Wonder Woman 11 culminated with a group exhibit at the NJCU Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery, which is on view till May 11, 2018.

 

On May 4 from 3 to 5 p.m. the Wonder Women Residency participants will present a panel discussion at HCCC’s Dineen Hull Gallery on current social issues and other topics brought forth by the works created for “Eye of the Storm.” Panelists will include Doris Caçoilo, Sharon De La Cruz, Eileen Ferara, Tamara Gubernat, Deborah Sperry, and Linda Streicher.
