Queering the Archive: Talks and Events – Irish Museum of Modern Art – 13.00 – 16.00
IMMA is hosting a special series of talks featuring artists working with queer archives. The processes of archive reclamation, disruption, interrogation and care will be discussed, performed and explored.
Contributors include Sara Greavu (Outburst Festival, Belfast); artists Padraig Robinson, Eimear Walshe and Karol Radziszewski; Anu Production (Louise Lowe, Owen Boss, Lynnette Moran), and Nathan O’Donnell (Researcher, IMMA/TCD).
By adding a queer, intersectional lens to how we mediate archives and embracing the creative work of artists, a new visibility is brought to how we define queer lives and ourselves as a society.
