Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York presents:
Monday, March 14, 2016, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
The Spring Speakers Series continues with art historian Amelia Jones. Chair of the Visual Culture department at McGill University, Jones is one of the most well recognized queer, anti-racist, feminist art historians working today. She has lectured throughout the world and the author of numerous publications.
On March 14, Amelia Jones will present a lecture based on her paper entitled “Individual Mythologist”: Vulnerability, Generosity, and Relationality in Ulay’s Queer Feminist Self Imaging. The talk will explore the performance and performative self-imaging practice of the German artist Ulay, who has lived and worked in Amsterdam and Ljubljana since the late 1960s. Jones will explore the qualities of generosity, vulnerability, and relationality as having queer feminist effects (and affects).
