Queering (with) Images hosted by Casa Libre
September 29 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Workshop description: In “Uses of the Erotic,” Audre Lorde highlights sharing and creative exchange as a key aspect of the erotic. In this workshop, we will focus on making mix-media poetic texts and artworks that attend to the erotic power shared between writing and visual arts mediums. Looking at the work of contemporary queer artists of color whose projects cross disciplinary divides, this workshop considers the generative relationship between texts and images/sculpture. Participants will engage in short art-making and writing exercises to explore how each process makes space for new questions and methods.Together we will consider how to queer our poetics by troubling the borders of the mediums.
