Queering the Art Classroom | Reading Group

19th June 2019 - 18:30-20:30

Sutton House, Hackney

Queering the Art Classroom is delighted to invite you to our first reading group on the 19th of June at Sutton House. Our first session will be led by Queering the Art Classrooms team, but thereafter texts will be suggested and decided as a collective.

The group will explore queer and feminist texts. We are open to all.

Our first session will look at the work of David Getsy. We will be reading the text together, so there is no need to prepare ahead of time, and copies will be provided on the night of the event. This session will also involve some practical making whilst we read, to add to our exhibitions 'Queer Bodies' sculpture.

The session will finish with a tour of our exhibition, alongside a small group curation of our queer bodies work.
