Artist Talk: David Getsy

  • VCU, The Depot 814 West Broad Street Richmond, VA (map)

The questions David Getsy asks of the history of art are developed from engagements with the interdisciplinary fields of transgender studies, queer studies, game studies, and performance studies. His emphasis has been on modern and contemporary art and theory, and he often focuses on topics relating to sculpture and performance. His aims are to infiltrate canonical narratives and to use transgender and queer theories as the basis from which to reconsider all artistic practice. He is currently professor of art history, theory, and criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
