Zeitgeist is the Nationa Queer Arts Festival’s visual arts group exhibtion. Curators for the exhibition include Jacqueline Francis, Josh Faught, Jordy Jones, Rudy Lemcke, Matt McKinley, Pam Peniston and Tina Takemoto. They say about theme and title of the exhibition, ‘Scholars have long maintained that each era has a unique spirit, a nature or climate that sets it apart from all other epochs. In German, such a spirit is known as “Zeitgeist,” from the German words Zeit, meaning “time,” and Geist, meaning “spirit” or “ghost.” Some writers and artists assert that the true zeitgeist of an era cannot be known until the era is over, and several have declared that only artists or philosophers can adequately explain it.‘ The exhibition runs thru June 29, 2013.
