Claire Mead – Queering the Museum
@ mima: Middlesbrough Institute of Modern ArtBook Now
30 March 2017
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Throughout 2017, queer culture is taking pride of place in British museums to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. Numerous exhibitions and collection reinterpretation projects are planned to celebrate queer legacies and make visible queer narratives. In this seminar, curator Claire Mead discusses how we can curate queer art without confining a range of creative practices to a single label or reducing it to a tick box on a diversity list, and instead ensure a lasting representation of queer culture within museums.
