Call to Artists – Crossing Boundaries: Engendering LGBTQ Identities


Avenue 50 Studio is curating an exhibit titled Crossing Boundaries: Engendering LGBTQ Identities to open on Saturday June 10, 2017 in celebration of Pride month across the nation.

We invite submissions exploring the diversity of LGBTQ experiences and identifications that give expression to issues of gender and transgressive sexualities colored by race, politics, geography, culture, ethnicity, and the pluralities of desire.

This curated show builds on the Avenue 50 Studio’s legacy of providing voice to marginalized artists, and is a space for the provocation and negotiation of artistic boundaries.

Performance and spoken word submissions are also welcome to add perspectives to the exhibit.

We look forward to supporting you and to your submissions.
