Arts/Entertainment

Recent and new collaborative works in drawing, printmaking, photography, and video by Angela Bartram and Lee Deigaard The animal and being animal is a proposition and position that invites observational and critical debate. To observe the non-human animal is too often tense and politicized; to take on an understated what-it-is-to-be-animal is a sensitized and sensitive means to understand differing perspectives. Artists Lee Deigaard (USA) and Angela Bartram (UK) critically approach the animal as the animal. Using diverse methods and materials and curious to potentialities, they explore working as humans from an animal-centric perspective. They bring sensitivities to their handling of the animal as both artistic subject and collaborator, of behaving as animal, in order to observe and engage with empathy and openness to the unexpected, to animal insight and revelation. Iterative long term projects in drawing and printmaking foreground proximity and proprioceptive, nearly devotional studio and caretaking practices centering on respiration and companionate movement within a global pandemic. This exhibition explores the socialized and familiar in close observation, directly and indirectly, in their individual yet companion practices and additionally features the artists in conversation and active collaboration on site in the gallery.

The Foyer: LGBTQ Mormon History and Theology

Conference/Seminar

Zoom Webinar Event
No other issue is as publicly prominent or as vexing for contemporary Mormonism as the relationship between the LDS Church and the LGBTQ community. We will discuss the history of LDS teachings about homosexuality, the recent emergence of “queer Mormon theology,” and how LGBTQ Latter-day Saints navigate the complex tensions of their religion and sexuality. Patrick will be joined by authors of two recent and important books on these subjects. Blaire Ostler is a philosopher who works at the intersection of queer, Mormon, and transhumanist thought. She is the author of Queer Mormon Theology: An Introduction (By Common Consent Press, 2021). Taylor Petrey is an associate professor of religion and chair of the Religion Department at Kalamazoo College. The editor of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Petrey’s most recent book is Tabernacles of Clay: Sexuality and Gender in Modern Mormonism (University of North Carolina Press, 2020).
