Lecture Series: The Culture of Queer Flowers

June 20, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Celebrate Toronto Pride with Alison Syme, Associate Professor of Modern Art at theUniversityofToronto, and explore the life and lessons of queer flowers. For centuries artists, writers and scientists have been fascinated by the sex life of flowers and the “perversions” to which plants are prone. Learn how the wilder side of natural history has inspired erotica, art and political activism.

Public $25 / Students (with ID) $15 / Members free. Door sales only.

Generously supported by The W. Garfield Weston Foundation and The S. Schulich Foundation
