Event Details

Join us for a conversation on the intersection of creative process and legal rights to abortion access in the United States. This program is presented as part of the Spatializing Reproductive Justice exhibition at the Center for Architecture, on view through September 3, 2024.

As access to reproductive healthcare varies from state to state, advocacy groups, practitioners, and individuals are engaging in ways to creatively provide care. A conversation between the transdisciplinary art group How to perform an abortion and Andrew Beck, a lawyer from the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, will highlight the ways in which artistic expression and legal action can address our access to abortions and women's healthcare.
