ON | BEING READ, two spreads of visual propaganda for an anthology of critical writing and art on queer optics and legibility. Topics investigated: pinkwashing, Non-Player Characters, advertising, dissident humor. Premiered at 2018 Chicago Art Book Fair.
The following spreads for On | Being Read exaggerate my dark amusement and frustration with the entrepreneurial, jester-like characters that I have felt pressured to adopt when advocating for queer rights in my professional work.
