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
Other things to note
The tour is done over Zoom. You will receive the link in the confirmation email when you book. During the talk you can ask questions at any time, and I hope we will get a little discussion going after each stop. The tour lasts an hour and a half, including time for questions.

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!
