Ye Olde Femmes: Histories of Queer Femme Art and Ideas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What if we knew more about queer femmes of the past? Would we start to see them as agents and creators of queer culture and history? In this session, four contemporary queer femme artists will each introduce the life and work of one femme artist or thinker from the past. Each 15 minute multimedia presentation will be a reclamation of femme lineage and power, and a way of tying current femme politics, art, and aesthetics to queer femmes who have come before us. At the end we will create portraits of femmes – ourselves and others.
