How does queer art intersect with conventional arts practice and conditions of audience reception? Or should it? What are the major successes queer artists and curators are experiencing now, and what challenges do queer artists face? What does the future hold for queer arts practice in a time of increasing conservatism?
Dive deep into art ‘queery’ with this dynamic panel of nationally and internationally celebrated queer artists, and hear firsthand about their personal and professional experiences, spanning curatorial practice, performance art, academia, music, writing, festival directing and more.
Presented as a special Midsumma edition of the Abbotsford Convent’s ‘Convent Conversations’ series, ‘Art Queery: On the Turbulence of Making Queer Art’ offers thought-provoking discussions, debate and theories, celebrating the intersection of queer ideas and modes of artistic practice.
