Israeli-born painter, philosopher, psychoanalyst and writer Bracha Ettinger is a prominent figure among both the French painters' and the Israeli art's scenes. Etthinger's CAI residency will include an exhibition of her work at the UB Anderson Gallery along with the creation of an associated catalogue featuring photographic reproductions of Ettinger’s work and essays by prominent scholars in psychoanalysis and art history.

Soon after the opening of the exhibition, Ettinger will offer two gallery talks, in which she walks with visitors through the exhibition and discusses her own works.

May 6: Free and open to the public

May 9: For interested undergraduates from UB, Buffalo State, and other area colleges

Ettinger's art was recently analyzed at length in the book Women Artists at the Millennium, in Griselda Pollock's Encounters in the Virtual Feminist Museum and in Catherine de Zegher's anthology Women's Work is Never Done. Her ideas in cultural theory, psychoanalysis, and French feminism achieved recognition after the publication of Matrix and Metramorphosis (1992), fragments from her notebooks (Moma, Oxford, 1993) and The Matrixial Gaze (1995). Over the last two decades her work has been influential in art history, film studies (including feminist film theory), psychoanalysis, aesthetics, and gender studies.
