Queer|Art|Mentorship has announced its seventh round of Fellows for the 2017-2018 Program cycle. Each Fellow accepted has been paired with an established New York-based artist within their field for a yearlong mentorship. The relationship that develops aims to support the artistic and professional practice of the Fellow, as well as to develop community-wide conversations about what it means to generate and curate queer work in New York City and America. Collectively, those selected represent a snapshot of a new generation of openly queer artists making work today.
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.
