MOCA is offering this 10-week program to the LGBTQIA+ community online with a focus on contemporary artists who identify as LGBTQIA+. MOCA has chosen 10 LGBTQIA+ identified contemporary artists highlighted in the series ART 21 on PBS, to share and whose work and experiences often intersect with our own lived experiences. We will provide the group with a link to video content where you can watch the artists discuss and make work. All videos are free to stream.
Participants will be strongly encouraged (although not required) to create work at home inspired by the artists we explore each week in the medium of their choice. This group is for all levels of learners and no prior art experience or is required. On Tuesday evenings, beginning April 21st, we will connect online at 6pm for one hour (potentially longer, based on the number of participants) to discuss each artist and share any artwork we created with the group via Zoom. I will also provide a link where participants can upload images of what they are working on where other members of the group can view and comment. I will offer guiding questions to generate discussion during our Zoom meeting. Please join us!
Artists we will look at include:
Zanele Muholi, Oliver Herring, Kalup Linzy, Catherine Opie, Collier Schorr, Elle Pérez, Jacoby Satterwhite, Jes Fan, Lari Pittman and Raúl de Nieves
