IAP Field Trip with the MIT List Visual Arts Center to Possible Selves: Queer Foto Vernaculars at Williams College of Art Museum (WCMA):

Please note: This IAP workshop is open to MIT Community only. Advanced sign-up is required, and limited spots are available. 

Possible Selves is the first major exhibition about the global impact of queer identities on the evolution of portrait photography and brings together works from WCMA’s collection alongside over two-hundred images from social media.

Join the MIT List Visual Arts Center, who presented this year’s Max Wasserman Forum: Future Genders, to continue the exploration of how artists tackle the stakes of visibility and politics of identity when they address the complexity of gender. This field trip will examine representations of gender identity in social media, and analyze embodiment in art photography and through visual representations online. 

We will meet in the lobby of the List Visual Arts Center and travel together to the Williams College of Art Museum, followed by conversations over lunch before coming back to MIT in the afternoon.
