Wat je gaat doen

I will take you on a virtual tour of the galleries of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to find the incredible art made by queer artists from across the 20th century. All artworks you'll see on the tour are made by queer artists and all feature in MoMA's world-beating collection of modern art. First I will give you an introduction to MoMA, and why modern art is a treasure trove of LGBTQ art and culture. Then I will introduce you to the question we will ask ourselves throughout the tour: what makes an artwork queer? If you've ever wondered how to spot queer art in museums, this tour is for you! I will answer that question by closely looking at the artwork of 5 artists in MoMA's collection—some artists you will definitely be familiar with, others will hopefully be new to you and will open your eyes to new and exciting queer art. After showing you the artworks in great detail and explaining them to you, I will ask for your comments, thoughts, questions and opinions to get a discussion going. Modern art is a gift to talk about and it always helps to have new perspectives on it. Every single time I do this tour I find something new to appreciate in the art thanks to the thoughts and comments of my participants. We end with an overview of the queer art we've seen and final thoughts on what it all means

I joined MoMA last year as a Museum Educator in their Education Department, in a team that specialized in digital learning. I spent weeks in research co-writing the Museum of Modern Art's first ever queer tour, which I hosted IRL before the museum closed due to COVID. From my research I identified over 230 queer artists in MoMA's collection. I rapidly converted it into an online Zoom tour and actually think it's even better this way! I've recently done this tour via Zoom for staff at the New York Times to fantastic reviews.
Before MoMA, I worked at the British Museum where I advised on their first ever LGBTQ related exhibition (that covered 10,000 years of same-sex desire) and I spearheaded the effort to get the Museum to fly the rainbow flag, the first time the Museum had flown any flag other than the Union Jack in its 267 year history.

I really enjoyed this tour! I learned a lot and George is great at facilitating meaningful discussion of the artwork. I would say this tour was about was more about depth than breadth. George was knowledgeable and fun. My friends and I are ready to sign up for another tour with him! This is a great value and I would highly recommend it to others.

This interactive tour provided some fascinating context about a few pieces of queer art at MOMA and helped me queer the way I view art. George is a great tour guide!

This was a completely insightful tour of Queer Art that I honestly cannot recommend enough. So interesting and George did an amazing job of taking us through not only the art but also to give a real opportunity to understand the work beyond expectation. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend!!!

I have just experienced such a wonderful evening (virtually) at the MoMA with George. He is so friendly and knowledgeable and I feel like I learnt so much. Honestly, I went into the experience being a bit closed minded about modern art generally, but it was super accessible and my mind felt truly opened. I will genuinely look at modern art differently from now on, since George gave such sensitive background about each artist and piece. He chose a great range of pieces and we had enough time to hear lots about each one and discuss between ourselves in the Zoom group about our thoughts. I will be recommending George and this tour far and wide!

This was outstanding. I was sceptical going in... I don’t have any in-depth knowledge in Modern Art. But that’s the beauty. You could be a museum virgin or you could be living out your fully fledged art critic fantasy - all you need here is an open mind! George’s level of detail and thought is second to none. He really has poured his heart, soul and expertise into this experience, and you can tell. At a time when we are all starting to get Zoom fatigue, this tour didn’t feel like any other - fresh, insightful, pacey. Well structured and funny. George is a gem. Miss this and miss out!
