Allen After Hours / Crafting a Queer Medieval Fever Dream

Thursday, April 4, 2024 at 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

This presentation will discuss ways to reevaluate traditional Catholic art and ceremony from a personal perspective. Join Tyler Gunther—who performs in the social media sphere as the Greedy Peasant—as he discusses his creative practice heavily inspired by the incredible craftsmanship and unique forms of storytelling within this style of art. Gunther will reflect on how engaging with these historical artworks and traditions has helped him better understand how the queer imagination has been present throughout history.
