UAAC Panel Session

Queerness and disability have long intersected, from the medicalization of queerness, institutionalization, and the HIV/AIDS epidemic to contemporary address, such as the ongoing suppression of Trans* healthcare rights.  Queer/crip refusals of closure offer radical alternatives to assimilationist or reformist politics, reflected in alternative modes of making and exhibition. We invite artists, researchers, and curators to share works, from contemporary and historical perspectives, exploring art objects, practices, and/or institutions that produce, perform, and/or promote radical queer/crip art and methodologies.

Topics can include:

  • Queer(ing)/Crip(ping) spaces + times/futurities

  • Art + curatorial transgressions, activism, barriers

  • Orientations or affects

  • De/colonizing the body

  • Historical + contemporary queer/crip aesthetics

  • Necropolitics

  • Queer/Crip Ecologies

  • Hybridity

  • Wreckage, refuse, debris, parts
