The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is pleased to invite you to a special series of Gallery Talks, as part of the cultural program for Amsterdam Gay Pride 2015 (AGP 2015).

In honor of Amsterdam Gay Pride’s 20th anniversary, the Stedelijk Museum has invited two speakers to share their unique perspective on the collection, from an LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Intersex) related viewpoint.

During the Gallery Talks, Stacey Moran Nocek (University of Washington) and artist Christian Friedrich will guide you through their selections of artworks from the museum’s collection. Both will offer personal insights and interpretations, and discuss their selection with particular emphasis on queer, feminist and gender studies and/or LGBTQI-related angles.

Join us during Pride Week and experience the Stedelijk collection from the unique perspective of these two speakers!
