A Panel Discussion, "Disidentification: Race, Sexuality, and Contemporary Art"

In conjunction with Glenn Ligon: America, a distinguished panel of scholars from various fields and art disciplines will discuss ideas presented in José Esteban Muñoz's 1996 book Disidentifications: Queers of Color and the Performance of Politics, described by the University of Minnesota Press as "an important perspective on the ways outsiders negotiate mainstream culture." As a member of the panel, Mr. Muñoz will share his personal insights and ideas along with fellow panelists: moderator, Noah Simblist, an artist, Southern Methodist University professor of Art who recently co-curated Queer States at the Visual Arts Center at the University of Texas, Austin; Annette Lawrence, an internationally recognized artist based in North Texas and assistant professor of painting and drawing at University of North Texas; Roberto Tejada, a poet, critic, curator, editor, and Southern Methodist University's Distinguished Endowed Chair of Art History; and Rose Pulliam of Allgo, a Texas support organization for queer people of color based in Austin. Join us for this unique opportunity on May 1, 2012, 7 to 8:30 pm in the Modern's auditorium. This program is free and open to the public, but tickets should be picked up at the information desk to assure seating.

The Modern will be closed Thursday, March 5, 2015 due to inclement weather.
