University of Illinois – Krannert Art Museum
Champaign, Illinois

To support the retrospective exhibition Millie Wilson: The Museum of Lesbian Dreams at the University of Illinois’s Krannert Art Museum (KAM). The exhibition’s thematic sections emphasize Wilson’s consistent appropriation of museum display practices and institutional authority, her art-historical references to Dada and Surrealism, her sharp attention to gendered portrayals of sexual deviance in early twentieth-century psychoanalysis and sexology, and her longstanding interest in bodies as unruly and contested sites, all foregrounding her playful use of language and materials. A scholarly catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
