How Do I Look?
Shifting Representations of Queer Identities

Juried by Craig Bruns, artist and
Chief Curator at the Independence Seaport Museum
Presented in partnership with Casa De Duende 
January 18th-29th

Opening reception: Wednesday, January 18th, 6-8pm 
Open gallery hours: Wednesdays 6-8p, Saturdays + Sundays 1-5pm  

This juried exhibition asks important questions at the center of contemporary queer life, examining one hundred and seventeen years of LGBTQ public representation to illuminate a community’s commitment to liberation, resistance, and to the struggle for normalcy, and acceptability, asking central questions about where we have been, where we are now, and where we are headed. Work submitted must address personal, private, and public perceptions of the queer self and may also reflect on how these have historically changed over time.

Deadline for submissions is January 7th, 2017, at midnight. 

Application fee: $20 for DVAA members, $30 for non-members

Matthew Borgen's recent work utilizes imagery from comic books published during the mid-20th century — the genre’s so-called golden age. Using their visual conventions, nostalgic aura, and narrative structure in combination with images borrowed from art history and other popular cultural sources, Borgen has developed a hybrid visual language which he uses in his digital prints and wall installations to make comment on topics ranging from historical, formal strategies of artmaking to issues within the current political and social discourse.
