Art in the Spotlight: Talking Queer Photography


4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

For the 25th anniversary of the CONTACT Photography Festival, Gallery TPW and Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies present We Buy Gold, an exhibition featuring ten emerging LGBTQ photographers living and working in Canada.

Join guest curator and Toronto Photo Laureate Michèle Pearson Clarke for a conversation with Sophie Hackett, AGO Curator, Photography, artists Jess T. Dugan and Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and artist and curator Ka-Man Tse about these and other queer photographic practices.

They’ll consider the themes taken up by the artists in the exhibition, while also contextualizing their work within a broader discussion on current strategies and directions in queer photography.

Register here to join the Zoom talk.

This talk is presented in partnership with Gallery TPW and Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies.
