Saturday, January 17th 7:00pm FREE
Ingrid Schaffner & Anthony Romero w/ A Screening of "Tongues Untied"
4th AUX Curatorial Fellowship Kick-off

Aux is proud to present an evening of lectures by Ingrid Schaffner and Anthony Romero followed by a screening of Marlon T. Riggs’ “Tongues Untied” from 1989.

ICA Senior Curator, Ingrid Schaffner, will present on her 2010 exhibition, Queer Voice – a group exhibition focussed on the voice as a material—one that has been manipulated, mediated, or otherwise affected—in works that signal a disengagement with gender norms and everyday conventions of communication.

Aux 4th Curatorial Fellow, Anthony Romero will present a performative lecture regarding his interest in the political potential of the voice for artists of excluded communities.

The seminal documentary on Black gay life, Emmy Award-winning director Marlon T. Riggs’ 1989 “Tongues Untied” uses poetry, personal testimony, rap and performance (featuring poet Essex Hemphill and others), to describe the homophobia and racism that confront Black gay men.
