Hiding in plain Sight: Breaking the Gay Code in Art 

This three-part Zoom lecture series will bring to light an extraordinary part of history that has been hidden from both the heterosexual and queer communities until now. 

Hiding in Plain Sight will expose how, throughout history, queer artists have faced the challenge of staying in the closet or being out with their art and lives, risking rejection and prosecution. Despite enormous repression from society and art institutions, queer artists have revolutionized art, survived scandals, won landmark battles, modernized photography, spearheaded movements, and transformed mainstream culture.  

The series, taught by instructor Ignacio Darnaude, will cover everything from classical art to modern masters and will be held from 5:30-6:45 p.m. on Oct. 4, Oct. 11, and Oct. 18. 

The total cost for all three lectures is $35. (This series is brought to you by UCR Osher Lifelong Learning but does not require an Osher membership to attend.)
