Artist and educator Benjamin Billingsley leads a lecture-style presentation centered on the work of Felix González-Torres, allowing time for Q&A in the gallery, with a focus on the theme of love in the broader context of art examining LGBTQ+ experiences. With González-Torres as the starting point, Billingsley will explore related works from LGBTQ+ artists with a variety of intersectionalities, considering issues of race, gender-identity and sexuality as explored in the works on exhibition. The discussion will include works by Thomas Barger, Jeffrey Gibson, Alanna Fields, and Felicita Felli Maynard among many others.
