Faculty and Graduate Students are welcome to join in a workshop with scholar, curator, and author Lex Lancaster to discuss “Abstract Tactics: Queer, Black, and Trans Approaches to the Prblem of Visibility.”

Participants in this workshop will discuss recent scholarship on queer, Black, and transgender practices of abstraction in contemporary art. Lex Lancaster will facilitate a discussion on these recent art practices alongside the theories and approaches to the problem of visibility, issues of surveillance and burdens of representation that minority-marked contemporary artists are refusing and redefining.
