EXTRA VIRGIN: THE MADONNA SYMPOSIUM
Fri Nov 15, 17:00
Talk, Sutton House and Breakers Yard, £6
Artists, academics and super-fans convene to queer the Queen of Pop. From the height of the AIDS epidemic to today, Madonna has embraced, elevated and arguably exploited the LGBTIQA+ community. Shocking straight society with her sex positivity, she did so while cannily cashing in on POC culture. In this symposium of bold ideas and blonde ambition, we'll interrogate the impact of an icon. Expect deep-dives, entertaining analysis and reinventions galore, because &!+€#... She's Madonna.
Featuring Provocations by:
Dr. Luis Campos, Rose Bruford College
Dr. Ryann Donnelly, author of Justify My Love: SEX, SUBVERSION, AND MUSIC VIDEO
Dr. Thomas Strong, National University of Ireland, Maynooth.
AND PANELS AND PERFORMERS TO BE ANNOUNCED!
Presented in Partnership with Sutton House
The Symposium will be followed by a screening of "Truth or Dare (aka In Bed With Madonna)"
Combined ticket for both events is £10
