Queering the Boundaries: Commingling Art & Creation

How does art inform our rebellions on and off the page? In this workshop, we will use queer art as our jumping-off point for creative writing. We will practice blurring the boundaries between artistic genres as we draw, collage, collect and look. We will look at work from misfits and rebels (David Wojnarowicz, Zanele Muholi, Amaryllis Dejesus Moleski, K8 Hardy, Caitlin Rose Sweet, Catherine Opie, and more). Olivia Laing's "The Lonely City" will guide us into an archive. All bodies and genres are welcome.
