The Queer Art Chat on Pleasure is a joyful, intentional gathering to explore artworks that question and challenge notions of pleasure, intimacy, ecstasy, and care, and the conditions needed to access them. Participants are invited to share their personal perspectives and experiences. This chat will be facilitated by Amber Hunnicutt and Isa Saldaña.
Queer Art Chats are a chance to build community among people invested in queer and trans perspectives, art, and liberation. No specialized understanding of art, art history, or queer theory is required; our own experiences and perspectives will form the basis for participation. In each session, participants will work with facilitators and each other to collectively generate ideas about queerness and transness.
Amber Hunnicutt is an educator and facilitator whose practice centers Black and queer liberation.
Isa Saldaña writes and performs, with attention to how Blackness, indigeneity, Earth, and intimacy exist in relationship with one another. They are the editor of “&,” a space for experimental feminist theory-making and artistic practice in Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory.
