art + activism: queer & feminist visibilities @ UCL
Friday 27 April 2018 10.30am 
— 18.00pm

There is a long tradition of employing images and performance as a mode of activism. Feminist and queer art practices aimed at reclaiming public space for bodies and discourses otherwise excluded from mainstream politics and culture have played a crucial role in defining art as a mode of activism. Building on events previously supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies (notably a panel on Black/Feminist/Queer: Intersections in spring 2017), this conference will bring together scholars, curators, artists and activists to debate how visual activism has been deployed in queer and feminist politics past and present.

Speakers include: Ama Josephine Budge, Tia Campbell, Giulia Casalini, Sarah Corbett, Nadine Davis, Antke Engel, Diana Georgiou, Theo Gordon and Selina Robertson.

Organised by qUCL in collaboration with UCL Gender and Feminism Network. Supported by UCL’s Institute of Advanced Studies.
