Upcoming Reception and Panel at the USC Doheny Memorial Library

In celebration of the opening of Cruising the Archive: Queer Worldmaking, the third part of the ONE Archives’ Pacific Standard Time exhibition, the USC Libraries will host a reception on January 24th from 5-7pm at the Doheny Memorial Library Treasure Room. Following the reception, the panel discussion “Queer Aesthetics and Archival Practices” will also be held at the Doheny Library from 7-9pm, addressing the practical and theoretical aspects of “the archive” and its relationship to contemporary art today.  Moderated by Malik Gaines, curator, performance artist and assistant professor of combined media at Hunter College, the panel will feature Ann Cvetkovich, professor of English and women’s and gender studies at the University of Texas at Austin; Catherine Lord, professor of studio art at UC Irvine; and Ulrike Müller, artist and coeditor of the queer feminist art journal LTTR. Both events are free and opening to the public. Hope to see you there!
