About the event
This month The Shed is taking you to the NGV to see the exhibition Queer.
AND we’ve got two rad options: one in person meeting for those who wanna be with other humans, one online meeting for those who wanna connect from home.
Please RSVP to this event if you want to come to the *online* session. If you've never come along to an online session before, please RSVP in advance.
“Queer [is…] forever questioning, redeploying, twisting terms, texts and itself from conventional usage”, so says Professor Christoph Ribbat.
Queer is a survey of the NGV’s collection through this lens. It brings together historical works that express quirky sensibilities, non-conforming genders and diverse sexualities with art from AIDS activism, camp aesthetics and performance and contemporary images of LGBTIQA+ individuals and community. It challenges us to connect our lives with scenes from other times and places, and opens us to new ways of seeing the world through our histories.
And browse through the Queer podcast with Courtney Act, the audio tour, and video curator talks. Check them out in advance here: https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/queer-stories-from-the-ngv-collection-with-courtney-act/
Feeling nervous? This is what the online event will look like: • Logging into zoom and landing in the waiting room • Coming into the zoom meeting and saying hi. • Group guidelines • Introductions round (names, pronouns and what you love about art) • Checking out the online resources (all together &/or in small groups &/or individually – we will sus out everyone’s preferences so we all feel comfortable) • SHORT BREAK • Queer NGV art quiz (on zoom) • Chatting about what we saw and loved • Nerdy option: making a storyboard about our Queer art loves (to share on Shed social media)
