    Karen Finley is a New York-based performance artist, musician and poet, whose raw and transgressive work on sexuality and disenfranchisement has provoked controversy and debate for over three decades. Finley will address and reflect on the tumultuous culture wars of the 1990’s, when public funding for the arts was under attack. After National Endowment for the Arts grants awarded to Finley, Holly Hughes, John Fleck, and Tim Miller were revoked following Congressional passage of a “decency clause”, the artists known as the “N.E.A. Four” became co-plaintiffs in Finley v. the National Endowment for the Arts, a case that was eventually brought to the Supreme Court in 1998.
