About the Show

The story of queer history that dominates the archival record is one of white cisnormative gays. In the CUAG exhibition, “To Be Continued: Troubling the Queer Archive,” curators Anna Shah Hoque and Cara Tierney question and destabilize this incomplete version of the past, foregrounding the work and creativity of emerging and established artists from Ottawa-Gatineau queer, trans and IBPOC communities.

This podcast is part of the Stonecroft Symposium: To Be Continued, a multi-vocal, multi-site virtual “event” held throughout the fall of 2020. It features a groundbreaking series of conversations with the artists and the Ottawa-Gatineau folks who have been and are integral to the building of this region’s queer community. Together, they collectively imagine and gesture toward alternative archives.

Produced by Fin-Xuan Tran, Anna Shah Hoque, Cara Tierney and Keegan Prempeh, the podcasts will be released throughout the fall.

The graphic for this podcast features beaded pins by artist and musician Larissa Desrosiers (Anishinaabe/Ojibwe). The pins were commissioned as gifts for the podcast participants. You can find more of her work at @bangishimonbeadwork.
