Queer|Art|Mentorship has announced its sixth round of Fellows for the 2016-2017 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.

A weekend long series of exhibitions, screenings and performances will take place throughout the weekend, featuring work by 2015–2016 Queer|Art|Mentorship Fellows and Mentors.
