Queer Art and Activism
As anti-transgender rhetoric and regressive laws spread across the U.S., it is vital that queerness in all its forms be visually represented in art and society. This presentation explores the effects of queer visibility for artists and their audiences. This research reviews art selections from the past and the present and relates the work to LGBTQIA+ liberation movements. Connections to this theme in art will be demonstrated by several selections at Dayton's Edward A. Dixon Gallery.
