Artists Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade join us to discuss the collaborative photography of PaJaMa, the name Paul Cadmus, Jared French, and Margaret French adopted for their shared venture, taken from the first two letters of each artist’s first name. What do these photographs tell us about the queer history of the 1930s and ’40s? How might they provide a genealogy of current thinking about the relationship between photography and performance? The conversation will be moderated by Stuart Comer, MoMA’s chief curator of Media and Performance.
This session meets in Lincoln Kirstein's Modern, Floor 3.
Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.
