YOU THINK IT's __________, BUT IT'S REALLY___________. August 1-september 2
Put on by BOSTON LGBTQIA+ ARTIST ALLIANCE (BLAA). An exhibition of work by artists living and creating at the intersection of LGBTQIA issues and culturally defined notions of “disability”. Working through forms of invisibility produced at this intersection, these artists have developed different understandings of the labels most often meant to correct such an invisibility: “Disabled,” “Queer,” “Artist.” Representing a wide variety of experiences, practices, and media, Boston LGBTQIA+Artist Alliance (BLAA)’s 10th show is a timely consideration of a main issue and question within disability studies, queer theory and socially engaged practices today: how do we find ourselves in the intersection of these identities together?
