Queer Art Chats are a chance to build community among people invested in queer and trans perspectives, art, and liberation. No specialized understanding of art, art history, or queer theory is required; our own experiences and perspectives will form the basis for participation. In each session, participants will work with facilitators and each other to collectively generate ideas about queerness and transness.
Queer Art Chat on Materials and Bodies will explore artworks that invoke the idea of bodies using assemblages of organic materials without depicting figures. Together, we will investigate how abstracted forms can gesture to lived, embodied experiences.
