iLGBT - Queer Migration artist 2Fik to Visit UA 27 March - 6 April

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

2Fik is a French-born Quebecker artist of Moroccan heritage whose art focuses on photography and also includes performance art and video. He is the artistic director, director, and model for his works, creating performances that toy with identities, beliefs, sexualities, and immigration. 2Fik's stories of queer migration are constructed with rigor and humor, and the collection of characters he portrays is brought to vibrant life, each one a fully realized individual. 

2Fik will be visiting the University of Arizona from 27 March through 6 April and will be delivering a public lecture,  Dissidentity: Portraying Labels to Break Them" (stay tuned for the time and place). He will also be working with iLGBT Studies' acting director Dr. Denis Provencher in his course, Global Studies 251, and with Dr. Marcia Klotz (Dept of English) in her course, English 696G: Queer Theories. If you would like for 2Fik to visit your class or work with your students during his time at the university, please contact Dr. Provencher.
