Join us for our 2nd virtual Zoom tour of the Museum of Modern Art to discover how queer artists are defining the art of our time!
NOTE: This is a brand spanking new tour and totally different than our previous queer tour of MOMA.

Contemporary Queers at MoMA

Queer artists have been around since the beginning. From Michelangelo to Dürer, from Frida Kahlo to Andy Warhol, queer art can claim some of the biggest names in the field. But what are queer artists up to nowadays? Join George Benson (ex-MoMA Educator) on an hour long virtual tour of MoMA's contemporary galleries to look at and discuss some of MoMA's most celebrated artworks made by contemporary queer artists. On this tour we will see:
  • Keith Haring and how his subway drawings transformed the art world
  • Nan Goldin and how her photographs changed the way we look at the queer community
  • Glenn Ligon and how his conceptualization of race and sexuality asks the viewer to reevaluate their place in society
  • We take a special trip back in time to visit Paris in 1863 to find out what exactly Édouard Manet has to do with contemporary art
  • Plus so much more!

Art has never been queerer and it's here waiting for you (virtually) at MoMA!

Speaker Bio

George Benson worked for MoMA's Education Department during the museum's recent expansion. During this time he co-wrote the museum's first ever queer tour and upon the museum's reopening George hosted MoMA's Queer Perspectives tour monthly for members of the public. In the course of his research for the tour George discovered over 230 queer artists in MoMA's collection and has worked with the museum to advocate a greater representation of queer artists on display. In London, George was co-chair of a group called MuseumPrideLDN, which brought together the LGBTQ networks of over 40 galleries, libraries, archives and museums to create a support and advocacy group for queer representation in cultural institutions across the UK. While working for The British Museum, George worked in an advisory capacity on the museum's first ever exhibition dedicated to the queer community, Desire, Love, Identity, a 10,000 year history of same-sex desire. In 2017 George was instrumental in facilitating the flying of the rainbow flag atop the British Museum, the first time the museum—in its 267 year history—had flown any flag other than the Union Jack.
