Whitney Museum of American Art: Queer Belonging
May 4 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Online, via Zoom
This series of online talks by the Whitney’s Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows highlights works in the Museum’s collection and current exhibitions to illuminate critical topics in American art from 1900 to the present. During each thirty-minute session, participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat for a 15-minute Q&A following the talk. Sessions are available live only, Tuesdays at 6 pm and Thursdays at 12 pm, but topics and speakers do periodically repeat. Check back here for more sessions added regularly.
This session knits together works from the Whitney’s collection to explore LGBTQ perspectives on gender, sexuality, and desire. Looking at a range of artists including Andy Warhol, Catherine Opie, and Zoe Leonard, the session will examine the way art has been a powerful tool in documenting and building queer communities.
Josh Lubin-Levy is a Joan Tisch Senior Teaching Fellow at the Whitney and recently completed his Ph.D. in performance studies at NYU. For the past ten years, Lubin-Levy has worked as a dance dramaturg and performance curator, and is the editor-in-chief of the Movement Research Performance Journal.
