Broc Blegen's "Coming Out Party" and Binod Shrestha's "Remnants & Rumination" are the starting points for a fascinating discussion on political change and queer art history.
Special Guests for the evening include:
Amy Kamel, a social worker at the Center for Victims of Torture; and
Nicholas de Villiers, PhD, a professor of gender/sexuality studies, University of North Florida.
After a brief introduction to the exhibition, Kamel will interpret Shrestha's installation through her knowledge of mental health and refugee experiences. And de Villiers will connect Blegen's work to Andy Warhol's reaction to Abstract Expressionism and the business of art making.
