Talking Threads

Talking Threads - Artist Talk
Saturday, May 14 | 3pm
co-sponsored with MassArt Fibers

Doing things with queer threads (doing queer things with thread)

As part of our public programing for the BCA’s current exhibition we’ve asked artist and educator Judith Leemann to host Queer Threads artists Jesse Harrod and Aaron McIntosh in a mapping exercise, in which all three collectively diagram the kinds of queer, fiber and other lineages informing their making and thinking. Rather than a conversation about what the artists already know about their own work or about what is held in common by artists in an exhibition such as this, the structure aims instead to trace each artist's multiple lineages to ask what else queer thinking or fiber thinking lends itself to thinking about. Each artist will also bring along texts that have influenced their work, including work by Sara Ahmed, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Ann Cvetkovich & Neil McInnis among others.

Part of our Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community exhibit.
