HESCAH Talk: Chic Radicals: Street Drag as Critical Performance Art in the 1970s

September 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm


Dr. David Getsy will lecture on the intersections of drag and performance art in 1970s New York City. His talk intersects with two of his current works in progress: one, a monograph on Stephen Varble, known for his genderqueer and guerilla-style street performances; the other, a multi-artist study which examines the rise of downtown performance art in the wake of the Stonewall uprising.
