Join us for a reception to celebrate Queer Forms and a fashion show featuring designs by Twin Cities-based Queer Hmong French American multidisciplinary artist Oskar Ly. Founded in 2006, Os. Couture combines Oskar’s passion for fashion, art and culture. From conceptual to wearable art pieces, Oskar’s designs are centered on the intersections of Hmong culture. She is a pioneer in the Hmong American fashion movement pushing Hmong aesthetics and cultural innovation.
This multidisciplinary group exhibition and related events investigates and celebrates the history, politics and culture of LGBTQ+ Liberation across a range of artistic forms and perspectives. Queer Forms coincides with the anniversary of these important historical markers in the history of LGBTQ+ Liberation: the 50th anniversary of the establishment of FREE (Fight Repression of Erotic Expression), a Gay student organization at the University of Minnesota, and the Stonewall Rebellion in New York in 1969; and the 60th anniversary of the resistance to police harassment of LGBTQ+ people at Cooper’s Donuts in Los Angeles in 1959. Exhibition runs September 10 - December 7, 2019. For info and a full list of related events visit z.umn.edu/nash.
