QueerXscape

Drop by the Ruby on Friday at noon for a casual art talk and free lunch to learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

QueerXscape reflects on the present from a queer collaborative perspective through a series of landscapes in mixed-media collage and video. The installation presents viewers with collaged landscape vistas and video that bring together queer camp with an environmental uncanny: familiar terrain interspersed with remnants of contemporary glass-walled urban architecture, unruly bodies, broken statuary, random trinkets, flowers, and food. The exhibit is a collaboration between two queer artists living between Durham, New York, and Istanbul and presents an aesthetic response to dominant modes of economic development that at once bridge these places and intensify their disparities in terms of urban and environmental life.
