Study Sessions: Sky Cubacub

FRI, Nov 3, 2017
7–9 pm

Floor Three, Hearst Artspace

Study Sessions is an ongoing event series inspired by Fred Moten and Stefano Harney’s notion of study as “what you do with other people.” For each Study Session, an artist, writer, or cultural worker selects a work of art on view in the Whitney’s permanent collection galleries as a departure point for thinking through an urgent question in our contemporary political landscape. Participants are invited to join together in open-ended discussions, and engage with creative practice. Study Sessions may take the form of workshops, listening parties, performances, readings, or film screenings. This session is led by Sky Cubacub. 

Sky Cubacub is a non-binary Filipinx human from Chicago, IL. Rebirth Garments is their line of wearables for the full spectrum of gender, size, and ability. They maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, they refuse to assimilate and are spearheading a QueerCrip dress reform movement. They are the editor of the Radical Visibility Zine, a magazine for QueerCrip teens based off of their manifesto. 

Free with Museum admission during Pay-As-You-Wish Fridays. Pre-register to skip the line.

The main entrance of the museum is accessible with elevator access to all floors. All gender restrooms are available on floors -1, 3, 5, and 8. Service animals welcome. Please come fragrance free.
