Neighborhood Minneapolis Dance Spaces Lost During George Floyd Protests

George Floyd’s murder may ultimately be a catalyst for positive change in Minnesota and beyond, but in the short-term, the local dance community has lost vital spaces and resources, including El Nuevo Rodeo, the cantina and dance club where both Floyd and his accused killer worked as security officers.

Let’s Stop Defining Artemisia Gentileschi As The Rape-Victim Painter

“Indexing Gentileschi’s oeuvre back to the rape and trial reinscribes the painter as an adolescent sex object, rather than an eminent adult artist with a 40-year career across major European cities.
