LGBTQ+ Censorship in Art

In this discussion, activists and educators reflect on LGBTQ+ activism through art and ask what role art plays in the future of LGBTQ+ expression.

Triptych (Eyes of One on Another) focuses on the censorship of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photography in the 1980’s, but artistic and political censorship continue to be present in LGBTQ+ communities in both Canada and internationally today. At the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which marked the beginning of the LGBTQ movement, we’ll look at how far we’ve come today. In this discussion we’ll hear from activists and educators with lived experiences across the world to reflect on what forms LGBTQ activism has taken through art in recent history, and ask what role will art play in the future of queer expression?

Prior to the forum we will be hosting Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures, a documentary film about Robert Mapplethorpe’s life and photography as part of our Illuminating Ideas series.
