Queermuseum: Queer Tactics Toward Non-Heteronormative Curating

Far-Right Criticism Shuts Down Brazil’s Largest Ever Queer Art Exhibition

“In early August, the cultural center Santander Cultural in Porto Alegre, Brazil, opened an exhibition on queer art. Featuring 85 artists and 263 artworks ranging from the mid-20th century to today, Queermuseum: Queer Tactics Toward Non-Heteronormative Curating was anchored, as curator Gaudêncio Fidelis put it in the catalogue, “in a concept we believe dearly: diversity observed under the aspects of variety, plurality, and difference.” The exhibition featured prominent artists such as Lygia Clark, Cândido Portinari, and José Leonilson, alongside lesser known, contemporary ones [such as Adriana Varejão and Antonio Obá]. It was the first major exhibition dedicated to queer art in Brazil — until it was shut down [on Sunday] September 10, almost one month before its planned end date.” – Elisa Wouk Almino

The exhibition Queermuseu – Cartografias da Diferença na Arte Brasileira / Queermuseum: Queer Tactics Toward Non-Heteronormative Curating was pressured into closing. Read more about this in the article Far-Right Criticism Shuts Down Brazil’s Largest Ever Queer Art Exhibition by Elisa Wouk Almino.
