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, April 21-July 29, 2018. In advance of the opening of the exhibition, Ettinger will give a public lecture in order to educate a broad audience about her work and its relationship to urgent contemporary social and political developments. This lecture will be free.

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.
