Legacies of Queer Indigenous Liberation



A Space for Dialogue 114


Love as Ceremony: Legacies of Two-Spirit Liberation highlights the work of contemporary North American “Two-Spirit” artists, exploring the ways in which two-spirit communities reclaim ancestral knowledge and imagine possible futures. The exhibition focuses on expressions of joy, love, and liberation in an effort to both resist and dispel Western colonial characterizations of queerness which have historically perpetuated narratives of taboo and voyeurism.

A Space for Dialogue is a student-curated exhibition program that began in 2001. Hood Museum of Art interns create an installation drawn from the museum's permanent collection by engaging with every aspect of curation, from doing research and selecting objects, to choosing frames and a wall color, to planning a layout and writing labels and a brochure, to giving a public talk. There have been over 100 A Space for Dialogue exhibitions on a wide variety of themes.

A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth's Students, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr. '66, and Pamela J. Joyner '79.
