Queering Social Practice: A Kiki

May 1, 2016
10:00am  -  6:00pm
Hot Tub Lounge, Gallery of California History — Level 2

Ongoing project with conversation from 5:03 – 5:48pm

We make a claim for the centrality of queerness within social practices. Over the past few years, we have noticed the lack of queer presence, collaborations, communities, and histories within the practices, criticisms, and theories of socially engaged art. Our kiki will be a space for artists to engage, share, and discuss these issues: Is Socially Engaged Art inherently queer friendly? How might queer theory help address the competing dualities and binaries of socially engage art? Do themes of sexuality threaten funding?
