Queer|Art is pleased to announce the 2017-2018 Queer|Art|Mentorship Annual Exhibition: “Here & Not Yet,” which opens on November 1 in conjunction with the 2018 Queer|Art|Prize, and continues through December 31 at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Center in the West Village (208 W 13th St). The two-month exhibition will occupy the second and third floors of The Center’s hallways this fall and includes multiple components in a variety of gallery-based and time-based art formats.

The Queer|Art|Mentorship Annual exhibition is organized by Queer|Art and curated this year under the title “Here & Not Yet” by current Fellow Eames Armstrong, with new works of film, literature, performance, and visual art by Justin Allen, David Antonio Cruz, Marco DaSilva, Federica Gianni, Lucas Habte, Ryan Haddad, Lamya Haq, Jarrett Key, D’Angelo Madsen, and Zoe Schlacter. While diverse in approach and outcome, these artists are united in dissatisfaction with the world as it simply is. They redirect the future by reimagining the past, upend limitations imposed on our bodies and relationships, and act out alternate realities to reshape what we know to be possible. Many of the artworks on view will be shown as fragments of larger bodies of work or works still in process, offering glimpses of each artist’s broader practice in ongoing formation.

In the words of curator Armstrong: “‘Here & Not Yet’ is a forward kick to the well-worn idiom ‘here and now.’ We may be present and attentive, but our minds race ahead toward tomorrow, propelled by the potentialities these artists propose.” The Annual will be accompanied by a publication, designed and edited by Armstrong and produced by Queer|Art, with contributions from all participating artists and their Mentors.

Visiting hours for the exhibition are 9am–10pm Monday–Saturday and 9am-9pm on Sundays.
