That’s So Gay 2014: On the Edge, Toronto

That’s So Gay – June 20-July 27, 2014 curated by Syrus Markus Ware Dates: June 20-July 27, 2013 Hours: 12-5pm daily Opening Reception: Thurs June 26 | 7pm-10pm Venue: 2nd Floor Gallery at The Gladstone Hotel
That’s So Gay is a celebration of new projects created by LGBTTI2QQ artists about their experiences of disability, radicalization, class, and other intersectional experiences of identity. The show attempts to interrupt the idea of a singular queer community, and reimagines what it means to talk about our lived experiences as artists from a diversity of backgrounds. Launched on the eve of World Pride 2014, the project necessarily responds to the construction of a simplified “LGBT” community in Toronto as posited in the bid for hosting the festival. As Toronto launches onto the world stage of LGBTTI2QQ activism, That’s So Gay: On the Edge will creatively explore difference through photography, performance, installation projects and large-scale works on paper.
