Join us on Tuesday, February 2, 2020 at 6:30 pm for a ZOOM conversation with writer and art historian Jackson Davidow (pronouns he/him). Presented in conversation with SNMA Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian, Jackson will discuss the concept of queer architecture.
About Queer Architecture
What is queer architecture? How has the field of architecture shaped and been shaped by queer and trans experiences and understandings of space? Through a selection of historical and contemporary case studies, we will consider how architects and other cultural practitioners have developed spatial strategies to create worlds and build communities. We will also consider how LGBTQ people have used, interrogated the limits of, and laid claim to architectures that have been hostile to sexual and gender difference.
