January 16 – February 26, 2017
Where We Find Ourselves is an exhibition that explores the oft-times unexpected ways in which queerness intersects with the quotidian and how queer individuals look to see themselves reflected in the mirror of mainstream culture, often through inference and interpretation. The exhibition includes works in photography, painting, video, digital collage and mixed media, and presents a variety of cultural lenses through which one can see the manner in which queer identity is both formed and affirmed in everyday life and the common ground we all share in finding ourselves.
This exhibition includes work from Adrain Chesser & Steven Miller, Kelli Connell, Zackary Drucker & Amos Mac, Chitra Ganesh, Jamil Hellu, Ryan Wilson Kelly, Brice Peterson, Tuesday Smillie, Chad States, Lorenzo Triburgo and Jonathan Van Dyke.
