Can queer/BIPOC artistic practices subvert Western assumptions about identity and politics?  You do not have to be an artist to embrace the concepts, the beauty and rawness we will explore in this seminar.   We will look at artworks and at theories of queer and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color) subjectivities in the United States.  Think: Mickalene Thomas and Felix Gonzalez-Torres alongside José Esteban Muñoz and bell hooks.  Assignments may include writing for museum displays and catalogues, artist statements, and reviews.
