2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

TJ Burk will create an online art exhibit and related event that explores the fist as a symbol of sex positivity and hands as a significant motif in queer art.  TJ will draw upon her personal experience as a queer leather dyke and her professional expertise as an art historian to curate and contextualize an exhibit that brings together existing but hard to find imagery. Her goal is to shine light on the sexual practice of fisting- a topic that is often sensationalized- and visually explore its importance to the history of queer sexual representation, in order to challenge social taboos regarding radical sex and LGBTQI individuals.
