Description

"Size Queen: Harold Stevenson and the Politics of Looking" Lecture    
October 24, 4 p.m. Mary Eddy Auditorium
Free and open to the public

Join us for a lecture by Dr. Sam Watson, Assistant Professor of Art & Design - Art History and Women & Gender Studies at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Watson will discuss Stevenson’s frequent use of enlargement, cropping, and fragmentation in his representations of the male body throughout the 1960s. This talk will explain how these practices relate to his experience as a gay man when homosexuality was criminalized and stigmatized. By investigating the sexual and artistic politics of the era, his work can be seen as an important bridge between queer artists before and after Stonewall.
