VIRTUAL Art Series: /Q//Art Exhibit – 2020
Featuring Queer artist and holding space to introduce artist virtually.
The works focus on celebrations in the lives of the queer artists. The mission of the exhibit is to challenge the idea that binaries divide us, and through art we create a catalyst for change.
Queer history is rich with examples of strength and resiliency in the face of fear, rejection, violence and hate. Let our history serve as constant reminder of the hardships we have overcome and the progress we have yet to make as a community.
A Virtual experience of Queer Artist work with introductions to each artist and access to their work they submitted. Can be streamed on www.harveymilkfestival.org and other social platforms.
Any art that can be considered “queer” refers to the re-appropriation of the term in the 1980s, when it was snatched back from the homophobes and oppressors to become a powerful political and celebratory term to describe the experience of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people. Adhering to no particular style, for over more than a century, Queer Art has used photography, portraiture, abstract painting, sculpture, and collage to explore the varieties and depths of queer identity.
