GoMA and Glasgow Museums are delighted to be able to work with Queen Jesus Productions on the book launch on 3 November and we also are commissioning a new print for the collection through the work – queer timɘs school prints. queer timɘs school prints is an ongoing artwork commissioned from the artist and curator Jason E Bowman and now in Glasgow Museums’ collection. It sets the conditions for LGBTPQI + A histories to be acknowledged in a set of education prints for the collection and subsequent editions for Glasgow secondary schools. As part of the process a series of events -school- will be attended by a self elected group of citizens to discuss what should be the perimeters for a brief for a new print. For the The Gospel According To Jesus, Queen of Heaven – 10th Anniversary mini-season there are four post show discussions which will form the school – Censorship, art and activism:Wednesday 30th October; Reflecting on a decade: 2009-2019: Thursday 31st October; Trans-theology: Friday 1st November and Queer freedom & the future: Saturday 2nd November. Thank you to the cast of Untitled 2009 who have agreed to attend these events and meet at GoMA to discuss and develop the artist brief for a new print to celebrate this anniversary … more news to follow!
