Multidisciplinary group exhibitions and public programs
September 17, 2019

EXHIBITION  |  Queer Forms

This multidisciplinary group exhibition and series of public programs investigates and celebrates the history, politics and culture of LGBTQ+ Liberation across a range of artistic forms and perspectives. Queer Forms coincides with the anniversary of these important historical markers in the history of LGBTQ+ Liberation: the 50th anniversary of the establishment of FREE (Fight Repression of Erotic Expression), a Gay student organization at the University of Minnesota, and the Stonewall Rebellion in New York in 1969; and the 60th anniversary of the resistance to police harassment of LGBTQ+ people at Cooper’s Donuts in Los Angeles in 1959. Queer Forms is part of a network of artistic and intellectual activity planned at the University of Minnesota and in the community. Exhibition runs September 10 - December 7, 2019.
