We're very excited to share this news, and to have the brilliant and passionate Travis Chamberlain join the Queer|Art team as our new Managing Director. We've been working towards this day -- our first full-time staff hire -- since we became a fully recognized 501c3 non-profit organization in 2015, and it represents both the success of our 8 years in action, and our commitment to longevity for years and generations ahead.
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.
We just added a new feature to our website! On the top bar you can find a calendar of all upcoming Queer|Art sponsored events.
