At the Digital Book & Print Fair, there’s something for everyone! Photographer Naima Green is selling Pur·suit, a deck of playing cards featuring images of queer womxn, trans, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming people, inspired by Catherine Opie’s Dyke Deck. At 2018-2019 QAM Fellow Russell Perkins’ table, you can purchase his book, The Future Tense, a publication centering collective grief that was named “One of the Most Beautiful Swiss Books of 2022” by the cultural ministry of Switzerland. Over in the zine section, Fair favorite and 2015-2016 QAM Fellow Brendan Williams-Childs is selling a sensational series of zines about everything from queer revenge fantasies, to Star Trek fanfiction, to Sappho’s writing. Visual media mavens will enjoy the whimsically mischievous drawings of 2014-2015 QAM Mentor Jibz Cameron, the erotically biomorphic sculptures of Erica Wessmann, and the bold photographs of Eva Woolridge that explore the spiritual nature of femininity across the gender spectrum.
Queer|Art connects and empowers LGBTQ+ artists across generations and creative disciplines. Founded by in 2009, we are an artist-led and community-centered organization—united by shared values of collective care, creative resilience, and the preservation and advancement of queer legacies and queer futures.
The devastating loss of a generation of artists to the ongoing AIDS pandemic has created a profound longing for cross-generational connections, mentorship, and community. Queer|Art serves as a ballast against this loss, seeking to highlight and address a continuing fundamental lack of both economic and institutional support for our community.
Ongoing programmatic initiatives include: our annual cornerstone program, the year-long Queer|Art|Mentorship; our long-running Queer|Art|Film series, sponsored by HBO at the IFC Center; and a wide array of awards, grants, and offerings that provide direct support to LGBTQ+ artists.
