Red Light Nights With the Art Council

NEWS

 

The Southeast Missouri Arts Council will be hosting a series called ‘Red Light Nights’, a speaker-hosted lecture and panel series that discusses taboo topics in the art world. Each month a local speaker will host a variety of topics such as censorship, gender identity, and other controversies that pertain to art and literature.

The first Red Light Night will be ‘Naughty Margins’ with Dr. Joni Hand who will take a look at medieval manuscripts and the scandalous images drawn in their margins. September 10 is ‘Art on Trial: Censorship versus Freedom of Expression’ with Dr. Kenneth Stilson. Then a look at ‘Gender identity and Art’ with Ashley Sexton and LeeAnn Luebbers on October 1. Dr. Joel Rhodes will present October 8 with ‘ “I Know it When I See it”: Redefining the Freedom of Sexual expression in the Age of Disco,’ and finally the series will conclude December 10 with ‘Darkly Lit: The Controversial Canon of Naughty Novels’ with Dr. Susan Swartwout.

Each panel takes place at 7:00 p.m. at the Southeast Missouri Arts Council on 32 N. Main Street. You can learn more on their website or Facebook page.
