Credits: 3

This elective engages image-making practices within late 20th-century trans and queer grassroots organizing and community-based archives. The course is structured around the exhibition Images on which to build, 1970s-1990s, which presents photography, performance, and publishing practices that were a tool for self-determination, including the work of Diana Solís, JEB (Joan E. Biren), Lola Flash, ART+Positive, The Sexual Minorities Archives, Lesbian Herstory Archives, and Visual AIDS. The exhibition travels to the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art in NYC in March 2023 and the course is taught by the show’s curator. Students will study the exhibition materials to complete studio assignments mirroring the multimedia projects in the exhibition such as slideshows, pamphlets, reading groups, and protest signage. Students will learn analogue forms of image/text dissemination and translate these modes to contemporary digital forms. Students will also be introduced to methodologies of the artist as researcher, curator, and participant in grassroots organizing.

Open to: All University undergraduate students. Some seats have been reserved for BFA Fine Arts students.
