Upcoming “Queer Pier” Art & Archives Workshop with Thomas Lax

ONE Archives is excited to host the upcoming Queer Pier Art & Archives Workshop with Thomas Lax on February 24th from 5-7pm.  In this two-part workshop, Thomas Lax, Exhibition Coordinator and Program Associate at the Studio Museum in Harlem, will discuss Queer Pier: 40 Years, a year-long arts-based archiving project initiated by FIERCE—a queer youth of color organization in New York City—to mark its ten-year anniversary in 2010. This multi-stakeholder project documented and celebrated the history of radical organizing on The Piers along Manhattan’s West Side. The lecture will be followed by a discussion about interactivity, participation and public engagement in the archive. Participants should bring ideas, projects and materials to workshop. The workshop is free and open to the public.

Following the workshop, ONE Archives will also host a reception for the Queer Caucus for Art, in conjunction with the College Art Association 2012 Conference,  from 7-9pm. All workshop participants are encouraged to stay for the reception and schmooze with an exciting group of queer artists and scholars.
