Art & Queer Reading

Thursday, November 16


Colby College Museum of Art

Colby College Museum of Art, 5600 Mayflower Hill

Sequins, wine bottle labels, mirrors—how do these unconventional art materials signal queerness? How do artists bring together materials that gesture towards both the joy and grief of their queer experience?

Join us in the museum galleries for guided conversations about works in Come Closer: Selections from the Collection, 1978-1994. Participants will take a closer look at multimedia works by Ken Tisa and Alfonso Ossorio before continuing the conversation and sharing a meal in the museum lobby. This event is free and open to all.

The “Art&” series brings together visiting artists, scholars, museum staff, and community experts for conversations about exhibitions, collections, and projects at the Colby College Museum of Art and its Lunder Institute for American Art. A mix of in-person, virtual, and hybrid programs, this series is designed for those interested in learning more about art and engaging with the key issues of our time.
