A Conversation with Liss LaFleur, Curator of ‘Cosmic to Corporeal: Contemporary Queer Performance Practices’
Liss LaFleur, assistant professor of new media, has curated an exhibition that opens at the MAC in Dallas this Sept. 21, 2019. It is titled Cosmic to Corporeal: Contemporary Queer Performance Practice.
LaFleur's intentions were twofold: to manifest queer visibility and community in DFW, and to question contemporary performance practices specifically in relation to the queered body. The significance of this exhibition, as one that is situated in Texas, a conservative border state that does not include gender within its hate crime law, and does not have any statewide anti-discrimination laws, is not to be remiss.

The MAC is located at 1503 S. Ervay St., Dallas, TX 75215.
Hours: Wednesday-Sunday, Noon–5 p.m.
