“Humanizing role of arts in the wake of the public health crisis” is a special segment of I ART New York on Radio Free Brooklyn for which Izabela Gola and Rebecca Major invite 3 of their previously interviewed guests to respond to COVID 19 pandemic. Its about resistance of the artists, curators, in response to the situation and strategies on how to deal constructively with this new reality amidst of all the chaos.
In this 15th segment Coco Dolle is back on our show, a French-American artist and curator whose work explores themes of the body, identity and feminism.
We discussed Coco's views on the role of the arts in the state of pandemic and her visions on post-pandemic times, as well as her role as a mother, an artist, an avant-guard curator, and an activist.
Her upcoming projects including MAKE YOUR MARK- a one-week online crash course and mentorship for artists concluding in a gallery group exhibition in New York, will be led by a duo of expert curator Coco Dolle and publicist Nathalie Levey.
Online Dates: July 6th to July 12th, 2020
Exhibition Date: TBD

Over the past decade, Coco has developed a personal mode of working that merges the roles of artist, curator and performer. Miss Dolle is an avant-guard curator within the feminist conversations in New York, she is the Founder and director of Legacy Fatale (2008) performance art project, built on notions of ancient mysticism and punk female leadership. And in 2014, she developed her curatorial eponym, Milk and Night producing feminist exhibition concepts while building her community.
Coco Dolle was born in 1974 in Avignon, France.
The previous I ART New York interview with Coco Dolle was our 3rd segment in April of 2019.
