In celebration of Women’s History Month, please join Tulane University Special Collections (TUSC) and the Newcomb Archives and Vorhoff Collection (NAVC) for an open house showcasing the artwork of Meredith Stern, as well as archival materials documenting the history of abortion and reproductive justice work from TUSC and NAVC’s collections.
Meredith Stern (NC ’98) is a feminist artist and curator. Her work focuses on cooperation and mutual aid. Meredith graduated cum laude from Tulane University with a BFA in Ceramics. After college she and several friends founded Nowe Miasto, a collectively run space in New Orleans which hosted music and film events and housed a screen-printing studio and a backyard garden where she planted her first strawberry plant. Her multifaceted practice includes printmaking, drumming, collage, gardening, and ceramic arts. She views art as a powerful medium of communication to visualize a more just and peaceful world, and to celebrate the power of collective resistance.
Meredith will be available for conversation and questions, along with staff from TUSC and NAVC. Light refreshments will be served.
