Photos at Zoom: Queerness and the Image

Photos at Zoom: Queerness and the Image

Watch the video: https://vimeo.com/425890483

This print viewing introduces a range of images that focus on the spectrum of identities within the umbrella of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer). The images focus on topics of youth, aging, identity, performance, and the notion of living an authentic life. The selection of works encourage students to discuss perceptions on identity and how photography can either represent or misrepresent that identity, while also navigating the artists’ choices in color, composition, point of view, and staging techniques. Select artists include: Iké Udé, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jess T. Dugan, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst.

This event will be recorded and transcribed.  If you require special accommodations for this event, please contact mocp@colum.edu.
