Queer Art Now (and Then)

PH/011, York St John University

Queer art really came into its own during the late 1980s and early 1990s when AIDS put the spotlight onto LGBT culture. This is not to say there were not queer artists or indeed art before this point but this changed what queer art was and could be. The talk, by local artist Nathan Chenery, will look at what is happening now and how it differs, evolving out of a relatively short history. It will engage the subject critically while equally drawing on Nathan's practice as a contemporary (queer) artist. The talk will end with a short informal discussion.
