Queer Frontiers: Steve Reinke Artist Talk
Hosted by London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA)
LOMAA is excited to welcome Steve Reinke for the sixth event in our Queer Frontiers series! Reinke will be presenting an online screening of The Genital is Superfluous: Final Thoughts, Series Four from November 7 - 14 at https://vimeo.com/lomaa. Reinke will also be presenting a new work, Father, Limping Through a Field of Clover, in his virtual artist talk! These events are presented in partnership with Pleasure Dome.
Steve Reinke is an artist and writer who was born in the Ottawa Valley (Eganville) in 1963 and educated at York U and NSCAD. A queer Nietzschean, Reinke is best known for monologue-based video essays. He lives in Chicago and teaches at Northwestern. His work is represented by Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Berlin.
LOMAA’s Queer Frontiers critically reflects on Canada’s 50th anniversary celebration of the purported “decriminalization” of homosexuality in the country. Serving as a counter to the state revelries, LOMAA will host 8 artists, artist duos, or curators who have established practices post-legislation and remain on the frontiers of Canadian queer media. This project centres queer narratives and praxis as a means to interrogate historical representation and continue fortifying queer futures within this country.
London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA) is a regional, emerging non-profit, artist-run organization focused on the exhibition of alternative and experimental time-based and media art. With an emphasis on progressive contemporary Canadian practices, LOMAA supports the presentation of local, national, and international artists in the areas of moving images, performance, new media, and sound art.
