Open to the MIT community only. 

Ann Hirsch (b. 1985, lives in Los Angeles) is an artist who has started a cult YouTube channel for one of her personas, appeared as a contestant on a VH1 reality TV show, and created a series of works (including apps and performances) loosely based on her pre-teen experiences with sexuality in an online chat room in the 1990s. 

Meet Ann and join her on a walkthrough of List Projects: Ann Hirsch, a new exhibition at the List Visual Arts Center that features her “greatest hits”: video and new media works that explore the effects of technology on pop culture, public femininity and feminism, as well as the internet and social media. Then, have lunch with Ann and staff from the List to discuss and explore your thoughts and responses to her work. Lunch will be provided. 

Advanced sign up is required and spots are limited. Please email (email hidden; JavaScript is required) to reserve your spot by 1/12/16.
