Wright State University’s College of Liberal Arts and the Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries are excited to present a lecture and video, Look at Me Like You Love Me, and Letter to my Father, by artist Jess T. Dugan. The video will be on display in the Stein Galleries starting October 10, 2023, and run through December 16, 2023.

Letter to my Father is an autobiographical video exploring Dugan’s estranged relationship with their father. In the video, Dugan reads an undelivered letter to their father, in which they try to come to terms with a difficult and distant relationship. The undelivered letter weaves together aspects of Dugan’s life, including their early gender nonconformity, family conflict, queer identity, personal relationships, desires to create a family and become a parent, and—ultimately—their father’s inability to accept them.

Jess will give a public lecture, Look at Me Like You Love Me, on October 18, 2023 from 5:30-6:30pm in Schuster Hall followed by a reception in the Stein Galleries.
