Live on Zoom
Art historian and curator Drew Sawyer will present a masterclass on the intersections of queerness and contemporary photography. How did photography help shape LGBT subjectivities and communities during the “gay liberation movement” of the 1960s and 1970? Subsequently, how have queerness and photography troubled our understanding of gender and sexuality? What does queer mean in the 21st century, and how can photography advance its aims Sawyer will consider the writings of Judith Butler, Cathy J. Cohen, Michel Foucault and David Getsy, along with the photographic work of artists including Paul Mpagi Sepuya, A.L. Steiner, and Carrie Yamaoka.
