This show considers the consequences of assimilation and progress. Where does growing mainstream acceptance leave more marginalized queer identities, and how do the myriad of LGBTQIA identities conceptualize themselves in the face of shifting cultural opinion? Who gets represented?
The twenty artists in this show are in contestation and dialogue with the idea of received representations, and are doing and undoing their own ideas of self and desire. Post-Gay? emphasizes the inventiveness of the LGBTQIA community as thinkers and artists who have the capacity to reshape society with new propositions. There are daring and confident assertions by the artists to paint new realities and lives, to re-imagine gender and sexuality in playful, thoughtful ways.
