queer timɘs school prints is an exhibition exploring aspects of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Polysexual, Queer, Intersex + Allies (LGBTPQI+A) histories and experiences in Scotland from the past 50 years. Opening on World Aids Day, this exhibition is part of an art and citizenship project commissioned and acquired by Glasgow Museums from Jason E Bowman, an artist with a curatorial practice.
Between 23 and 27 July 2018 queer timɘs school participants attended assemblies held in museum sites, archives, libraries and other public institutions in Glasgow. Researchers, activists, archivists, art and social historians, scientists, curators and artists presented on conditions affecting LGBTPQI+A lives and histories, and their organisation. Ten artists were subsequently commissioned to produce prints relating to concerns identified by regular participants of the queer timɘs school from their analysis of these assemblies.
It was proposed at the queer timɘs school that the prints be made available to Glasgow’s secondary schools. A qualified teacher who participated in the school has prepared provisional lesson plans that accompany the prints – copies of these are placed within the gallery space.
