This four-week course led by Gaby Sahhar and Lilly Cheetah from Queerdirect offers a chance to explore the spectrum of gender and sexuality by looking at how one can ‘queer’ the viewing experience of art and think about them in relation to a queer subject.
Participants will be able to use life drawing as a participatory performance practice, assisted by clothing and props to challenge various notions around gender and sexuality. This includes explorations of queer intimacy, examining how the queer gaze relates to subjects outside assumed roles of sexuality and re-thinking heteropatriarchal norms.
Week 1: Seeing Queerly - Re-framing the Analytical Gaze
Week 2: Structure and Masc and Femme
Week 3: The Everyday
Week 4: City Sex and Gender identity
