Golden Touches: A Conversation on Queer Curating
Hosted by University of Toronto
Hosted by The Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies' inaugural Artist-in-Residence, Michèle Pearson Clarke, this conversation is part of the process-based research she is undertaking into queer and feminist curatorial strategies during her year-long residency. Her work in this area will culminate in “We Buy Gold,” an upcoming exhibition of contemporary Canadian LGBTQ2S+ photography in partnership with Gallery TPW.
Framed by current discussions happening at the intersection of contemporary art, social transformation, activism and care, this online panel discussion will invite participants to reflect on the politics and practices of queer curating in Canada. Taking up queerness as both an orientation and a mode of possibility, panelists will address questions of queer exhibition making, curating otherwise and foregrounding difference as a queer strategy of subversion. The conversation will be moderated by Michèle, with guest speakers Blair Fornwald, Vanessa Kwan, Sean Lee, and Adrienne Huard and Lindsay Nixon.
This event will be held as a Zoom webinar and will include live captioning. Please use the order form for this event or the "Contact the Organizer" function on Eventbrite if you have any other accessibility requirements.
