UC Riverside’s ARTSblock, Department of Media and Cultural Studies, SEATriP, Queer Lab, and the Center for Art and Thought present
QUEER SITES AND SOUNDS
Thursday October 16, 2014
12 noon – 7pm
Culver Center of the Arts
In the era of the digital, how might we have to queer what we think is queer? What can we learn about queerness and digital normativity by centering the histories and voices of the Filipino diaspora? In tandem with the exhibition “Queer Sites and Sounds,” this symposium offers curatorial, artistic and poetic perspectives on the relation between new media, digital normativity, and queer bodies and practices. Performances and lectures by key Filipino American artists will be followed by a closing roundtable discussion with the audience.
Visit the exhibition “Queer Sites and Sounds” at the Culver Center, second floor, now until November 1, 2014. Additional works available online: http://centerforartandthought.org/work/project/queer-sites-and-sounds
