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.
