CHRONOTOPIA, Queer Exhibition in San Francisco

CHRONOTOPIA, the National Queer Arts Festival’s annual visual arts exhibition explores the past, present and future of queer people that will permanently alter the way you think about queer art and history in America and beyond.

The exhibition captures the multiple dimensions of queer time and place; locates queer lives in relation to complex communities; and remembers historical moments that are framed and re-framed by the present. It also offers alternative approaches to the historical record that challenge a fixed chronology of events and complicate the idea of memory. The exhibition is curated by: Cheryl Dunye, Tirza True Latimer, Rudy Lemcke, Matt McKinley, Pamela Peniston and Tina Takemoto.

Meet and mingle with artists from California and beyond over reception drinks and nosh! Performances during the reception by members of EG Crichton’s The Lineage Project sponsored by the the GLBT Historical Society.
