Beginning with a core group of invited Festival artists and scholars, this longtable format inspired by Split Britches’ TBA performance invites anyone from the audience to take a seat at the table and join the conversation. Discussion topics will consider what constitutes queer art and performance today, the ways in which artists are engaging queer identities and experiences across forms and disciplines, and how queer politics show up in performance and in life. Moderated by Shawna Lipton, TBA Guest Scholar and Chair, MA Critical Studies, Pacific NW College of Art.
