You may think that I am referring to my personal life, but I am not. “Looking for love in all the wrong places” is a postering project/networking project for queer artists to collaborate, takeover and discuss safe spaces for queers in Alberta, Canada and beyond. If you are in Alberta watch out for poster and artworks with radical queer messages in the streets.
The postering project has presented works by the following queer women – Karen Campos (Edmonton), Megan Morman and Cindy Baker (Saskatoon), Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan (Winnipeg) and Anthea Black (Calgary) with a special postcard edition by Carol Maxwell (Texas). And if you submit your designs could perhaps be the next artist to be chosen for production of a poster!
Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – queer public space takeover postering wank-out!!!
Queer artists and activists are invited to send submissions of 2-3 colour silkscreen poster designs in the following formats:
