Complex Issues: Pride: 1950s: People Had Parties

Thursday, February 17, 2022 - 18:30 to 20:30
6:30 - 8:30pm ET

Location: 

Virtual.

This conversation explores the first episode of Pride, a six-part documentary series chronicling the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the United States from the 1950s to the 2000s. Each episode is dedicated to a decade and directed by a different director. Kalin’s contribution — “1950s: People Had Parties” — is a “revealing look at the vibrant and full lives lived by queer people in the 1950s amidst a steep rise in governmental regulations against the LGBTQ+ community led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, who ushered in an era of government-sanctioned persecution,” according to FX Networks.

Between Black Boxes and White Cubes: "Figuring" Vogue Femme in Rashaad Newsom's "Black Magic"

Thursday, February 17, 2022 - 18:30 to 20:30
6:30 pm ET

Location: 

Virtual.

This talk will address Brooklyn-based black visual artist Rashaad Newsome’s recent work, “Black Magic” (2019), which included live performances in both New York City and Philadelphia, an exhibition of collage, sculpture and artificial intelligence at the Philadelphia Photo Art Center, and a black contemporary art-themed drag ball. I will focus on the artist’s desire to decenter the white cube (or gallery space) in his work, even as he links performance practices with drawing and sculpture through the use of technologies like motion capture and 3D printing.
