‘Queer Eye on Women and Gender’

The LGBT Center at UofL and the Speed Art Museum are hosting “Queer Eye on Women and Gender,” a talk inspired by two exhibitions currently on display in the museum. ”Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism” is a groundbreaking show highlighting an international group of female artists working in Paris from 1850 to 1900. “Breaking the Mold: Investigating Gender at the Speed Art Museum” asks the question, “How can contemporary art facilitate discussions about gender and power?” The event begins with a reception with appetizers and a cash bar. At 6:30 p.m., Speed curators Erika Holmquist-Wall and Miranda Lash, along with the curator of the Faulkner Morgan Archive, Jonathan Coleman, will lead the gallery talk and discussion. Registration is required.
