Does the “Queer” Label Protect or Divide? 


Do we still need the labels “queer art” and “queer artists”? Join us for an inter-generational dialogue with four Chicago-based artists for a discussion about queer labels in the art world. Inspired by Chris Stewart’s recent print article in GAYLETTER, this event aims to create space for artists and audiences from every living generation to hear their perspectives on the evolving state of the label “Queer” related to the organizing of art and the public identity of the artist.

This event will be moderated by Tracy Baim, Publisher of the Chicago Reader, and co-hosted by Wrightwood 659 and SAGE.

Panelists include artists Jared Brown, Juarez Hawkins, Silvia Malagrino, and Leonard Suryajaya.

Space is limited.
