Queer Art Chat on Queer Possibility
Queer Art Chats are a chance to build community among people interested in queer perspectives and art. No specialized understanding of art, art history, or queer theory is required; you already have all the knowledge you need to participate!
Each one-hour online session is an opportunity for a group to view and discuss works from MoMA’s collection. Participants and facilitators will work together to generate ideas about these works, highlighting LGBTQ+ perspectives.
There are limitless ways of looking at art! In this Queer Art Chat we’ll explore abstract works by South American artists by using a queer gaze to see what new possibilities, potentials, and capacities arise from this perspective. This session is led by Abed Haddad and Githan Coopoo.
