The first week of the 2011 Midsumma Festival is jam-packed with queer visual arts launches. There’s an overview to them at the festival’s website. Most of the art shows run for the duration of the festival January 17 – Febuary 6 2011, so if you miss the launches you still have plenty of time to see the exhibitions.
