Transactivation: Revealing Queer Histories in the Archive
Thursday, March 1, 2012, 6-9pm
ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives
Do not miss this amazing event! In conjunction with Cruising the Archive, artists Heather Cassils, Zackary Drucker, Wu Tsang and Chris Vargas will present a series of live performances and video projects inspired by the collections at ONE Archives. These artists explore trans content in their multidisciplinary work and are interested in a discussion about LGBTQ archives and the “Ts” and “Qs” often missing from historical records. The performance will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dean Spade, assistant professor at the Seattle University School of Law.
Also come to see Catherine Lord’s To Whom It May Concern, in its last week on view at ONE Archives.
Organized by Onya Hogan-Finlay, David Frantz and Mia Locks. co-sponsored by LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions)
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!
