Queer Movidas: Chicanx Camp and Genealogies of Resistance in Contemporary Art

Date and Time: 
Friday, April 29, 2022. 11:00 AM
Meeting Location: 
Zoom
Workshop: 
Feminist, Queer, and Trans Studies Colloquium
Meeting Description: 

This talk explores how queer Chicanx artists have mobilized camp as a resistant artistic tactic in artworks from the early 1970s to today. The talk and artists discussed highlight the movement and creative interchange between the space of the museum and the street, as well as the museum and bar, as spaces for art and performance.

C. Ondine Chavoya is a professor of art history and Latinx studies at Williams College and is currently in residence at the Getty Research Institute as part of the scholar year devoted to “The Fragment.” Chavoya co-edited Chicano and Chicana Art: A Critical Anthology (Duke University Press, 2019) and is active in the curatorial field, having organized numerous exhibitions including, Asco: Elite of the Obscure, A Retrospective, 1972–1987 (with Rita Gonzalez, 2011) and Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A. (with David Evans Frantz, 2017). Chavoya served as the International Consulting Curator to the Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI) in Perú from 2018-2020.
