CHRONOTOPIA: The Past, Present and Future of Queer Histories - Call for artists

Deadline: March 1st, 2010


In keeping with the theme of this year’s National Queer Arts Festival, “Making History,” the Queer Cultural Center announces the Call for Entries for its Visual Arts Exhibition Chronotopia, which will take place in June 2010 at SOMArts Gallery, San Francisco.

Chronotopia will present work that engages queer history as its catalyst. This exhibition explores the past, present, and future temporalities of queer people and records our histories in new and challenging ways.

The Queer Cultural Center is looking for work that captures the multiple dimensions of time and place that locates the self or selves in relation to communities and that remembers historical moments that are framed and/or re-framed by our present. Alternative approaches to the historical record that challenge a fixed chronology of events are encouraged. The Queer Cultural Center seeks a multidimensional vision of our queer history that is open to limitless potentialities and vantage points where conflicting desires and narratives coexist, where ghosts converse with the living, where we imagine impossible possibilities, and where we explore meaning and purpose--Chronotopia.

Eligibility: Submission is open to international LGBTQI Artists. All media including video, installation, net art, performance are accepted.
