I’m thrilled that there is a Tee Corinne Exhibition/Celebration at the University of Oregon Libraries in Eugene. As readers know, Tee was along time close friend with whom I worked closely on her exhibition and art in the months before she died. I miss her a lot.
WomanLove: The Life, Art, and Legacy of Tee Corinne is from September 29 through December 31 in Knight Library. The exhibition includes both photographs and writings. All works are from Special Collections and University Archives. There will be a short symposium about Tee’s life and work (and about lesbian culture and representation) on Monday December 8 and Tuesday December 9.
On December 8 at 7pm, there will be a keynote address by Tirza Latimer. She’s a distinguished queer scholar, a professor of art history at the California College of the Arts and a dear friend of Tee’s. On Tuesday, December 9 in the morning there will be a panel discussion with Tirza, University faculty and graduate students and others on the topic of lesbian culture and representation. Following the discussion, there will be a slide show of Ruth Mountaingrove’s photographs, which are also housed in Special Collections and University Archives.
The exhibit and symposium events are sponsored by the UO Libraries, the Center for the Study of Women in Society, and the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at UO. They are curated by Linda Long (firstname.lastname@example.org), Manuscripts Librarian, who worked with Tee very closely for years on the acquisition of all her work by the library.
All these events are open to the public. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Tee Corinne’s life and art, and a fabulous reason to have a party in her honor!
I know she would have been profoundly happy about the exhibition and symposium at the home of her collected works.
