Civil Partnership event at the Tate, 2012

Curating Feminist and Queer Art

The above video presents the highlights of the Civil Partnership Event at Tate in 2012. The symposium was held as part of the Leverhulme funded project Transnational perspectives on women’s art, feminism and curating. “Reflecting on the politics and practices of queer and feminist art curating, this symposium hosted presentations from an international line-up of artists, curators and critics to address a set of key questions: how do feminist and queer projects emerge as art exhibitions?”

Among the speakers were queer/LGBTQ curators Allyson Mitchell, Deirdre Logue, Michael Petry, Matt Smith and Pawel Leszkowicz, who are helping to nurture, feed and cultivate a new tradition of presenting queer subject matter at art museums and national collections.
