Let's Talk at Pro Arts / by Margaret McCarthy


On November 16, 2017, I was delighted to sit with Liat Berdugo and discuss feminism, collaboration, and art-making at Pro Arts in Oakland.

Curated by Leora Fridman and Ellie Lobovits, Let’s Talk is a three-part live conversation series that will explore and amplify collaboration through a feminist lens. This final part features artists, Liat Berdugo and Margaret McCarthy.

Liat Berdugo and Margaret McCarthy co-created Anti-Trump Aerobics as part of the Bay Area’s 100 Days Action, and have performed the Aerobics routine at locations including Alley Cat Books in San Francisco, and covered broadly by media including Mother JonesFusion and Allure. In this conversation Berdugo and McCarthy will debrief the fallout of the online harassment that followed their performance, as well as the responsibilities and repercussions of presenting as women/feminist bodies in action in public and political spaces.
