Queer(y)ing Creative Practice Reading Group

You’re invited to the Queer(y)ing Creative Practice Reading Group!

QCP is an informal collective of RMIT artist academics, students, alumni and affiliates with an interest in queer creative practices. The QCP reading group is a place to come together once a month to discuss queer theory and current research happening in and around RMIT. 

When: 12-1.30pm June 3

Where: 6.2.3 Photo Studios

PhD student Zoë Bastin will facilitate the first reading group discussing Judith Butler’s seminal text Gender trouble: feminism and the subversion of identity  (just the first chapter) and Gordon Hall’s Object Lessons: Thinking Gender Variance through Minimalist Sculpture. We will talk about subject/object ontology, and the ways Hall and Butler bend, queer and deviate traditional ideas of gender. 

The role of facilitator will rotate around the group in following meetings, so everyone has an opportunity to present current research and theory.

Readings are:

Gordon Hall (2013) Object Lessons: Thinking Gender Variance through Minimalist Sculpture, Art Journal, 72:4, 46-57, DOI: 10.1080/00043249.2013.10792863
