Queer Heretics: Visualizing Queer Heresies

April 4, 2017 - April 21, 2017

Joan Flasch Reading Room Display Cases,

School of the Art Institute of Chicago John Flaxman Library

Visualizing Queer Heresies brings together visual works and ephemera surrounding the themes of witchcraft, queerness, and the disruption of indigenous spiritualities as a result of European colonization.

The exhibition showcases works in SAIC's Flaxman Library Joan Flasch Artist Book Collection that excavate and envision the ways in which witchcraft and magic intersect with queer and ethnic experiences. In doing so, it makes visible the enshrouded powers of the queer heretic.
