'The Future is Queer' will officially open March 13th.
'The Future is Queer' will be featured as a virtual exhibition as part of The University of Tennessee, Knoxville's Remote Contact Symposium (http://volweb.utk.edu/~remotecontact/index.html) I (Erin Wohletz) will be speaking about the project on March 13th at 1:30.
‘Queer’ is a term which has evaded definition. Just when you think you have an answer it morphs and changes into something new, always encouraging further exploration. Without the ability to define the term with words we can only hope to define queerness through a variety of visual representations. ‘The Future is Queer’ is an exhibition which seeks to create an index of LGBTQ+ practitioners working within the medium of print. The LGBTQ+ community like printmaking thrives through community practice.‘The Future is Queer’ seeks to create, visualize, and connect LGBTQ+ printmakers. Utilizing the benefits of a virtual exhibition space my goal is to highlight the work of as many practitioners as possible. In this way we can form a beautifully varied visualization of ‘queerness’ within our growing printmaking community.
