Queer|Art is pleased to announce the 2016-2017 Queer|Art|Mentorship Annual Exhibition: “Out from the Past & Into that Fog.” Organized in partnership with the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, the Annual will be presented at the Museum’s Prince Street Project Space (127-B Prince St.) from October 13-15th. The Annual includes a weekend of screenings, readings, performances, and a gallery exhibition, featuring new work by the 2016–2017 Queer|Art|Mentorship Fellows.
Queer|Art is pleased to introduce Queer|Art|Awards, a new program of grants, prizes, and awards that will provide various kinds of direct support—monetary and otherwise—to LGBTQ artists. Over time, Queer|Art|Awards seeks to include a spectrum of support that will benefit artists working in a variety of fields and mediums, as well as broader categories of support that will survey LGBTQ culture as a whole.
Queer|Art initiates the Queer|Art|Awards program with The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant.
The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant is an annual grant that will be awarded to self-identified lesbians for making visionary moving-image art. Work can be experimental animation, experimental documentary, experimental narrative, cross-genre, or solely experimental. Applicants must be based in the U.S. This grant was established by Hammer in 2017 to give needed support to moving-image art made by lesbians. The grant is $5000.
