June 24 – August 26
Reception Saturday, June 24, 7:00pm
Cabinets of Curiosities (or Wunderkammers) were collections of objects that would later be separated into the distinct categories of geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art, and antiquities. During the Renaissance such collections were shown together in what are now considered the early precursors of the modern museum.
Cabinet of Queeriosities IV is the fourth in a series of exhibitions celebrating LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer) history, identity, culture and pride through a similarly diverse range of subject matters and approaches.
This exhibition is about inclusivity rather than exclusivity and strives to provide a range of voices in a variety of media. Some of the artists are parents of LGBTQ children or have LGBTQ friends and/or family members who have inspired them. Others simply refuse to be limited by narrow definitions of masculinity and femininity, male and female, or straight and gay. And, of course, some indentify as LGBTQ and make works that address their positions as such.
Whatever the case, it is my hope that Cabinet of Queeriosities III provokes an open dialogue around issues of identity and diversity in our community.
