reminder: QUEERING THE ART MUSEUM SYMPOSIUM!!

 

Hello there, dear Hank Blog readers,

This is a friendly reminder (I know, I know, of course you didn’t forget!) about the amazing Queer events happening at the Henry, the Tacoma Art Museum, and the Space this weekend.

TONIGHT (may 11th, more details HERE)

Join us for a reception at Molly’s Cafe at the Henry Art Gallery, starting at 5:30, followed by an horizon broadening discussion (at 6:30) of current practices in queer engagement and exhibiting in art museums in the auditorium

TOMORROW (may 12th, more details HERE)

A mind blowing discussion of the future of queer in museums in the Henry Art Auditorium, starting at 10 am. There will also be a lunchtime performance by Ilvs Strauss, a Seattle performance artist. Then we will all collectively apparate (read: take the bus, carpool, bike) down to the Tacoma Art Museum for exhibition tours with Hide/Seek co-curator, Jonathan Katz and a community building workshop facilitated by Queering the Museum founders, Erin Bailey and Nicole Robert. Afterwards, come to the Space (at 8pm) for a public reception and celebration!

Not sure how to get to Tacoma? Here are some driving directions, here are biking directions and if all else fails, the #586 which picks up right outside the Henry takes you right to Tacoma!

All of the event (save the exhibition tour, which is $5) are free for UW Students!
Reserve / buy tickets: may 11th & may 12th
