“Queerness exists in the gray areas, much like the nature of human sexuality itself. Challenging, reordering, and defying boundaries is inherent to the nature of being queer. Living on the cusp, in the “in between,” provides us a unique perspective. There are aspects of the human experience that we all experience the same. We all have a desire for intimacy, connection, to appreciate the beautiful (whatever that means to us). The aim of our exhibition is to increase queer visibility. To reshape boundaries in the direction of inclusion and acceptance.”

— Joey Sbarro

Featuring work by John Brooks, Adam Chuck, Mati Gelman, John MacConnell, Melody Melamed, and Joey Sbarro.
