The Simpson Center’s Feature on Queering the Art Museum

Our friend, the Simpson Center for the Humanities, wrote a really great feature on the upcoming symposium at the Henry, Queering the Art Museum: How did we get here? and Where do we go from here?

From the article:

How can museums better address, engage, and integrate queer culture? UW graduate students Erin Bailey (Museology) and Nicole Robert (Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies) are organizing “Queering the Art Museum,” a symposium that they hope will invite attendees to explore such questions.

The symposium will take place both on and off-campus, in Seattle and in Tacoma on May 11 and 12, 2012. Through lectures, performances, tours, and community conversations, speakers and attendees will engage with queer themes.  It parallels the exhibition HIDE/SEEK: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture, on view at the Tacoma Art Museum through June 10.
