Call for Art – Queering Democracy: Art, Identity, and Politics in 2024

Visual Arts
Organization Rochester Contemporary Art Center & ImageOut Art
Deadline June 15, 2024

Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) and ImageOut Art seek artist submissions for a juried exhibition opening in Rochester, NY in 2024. Queer art has achieved greater prominence in recent years, yet the LGBTQIA+ community’s struggle for freedom and equality persists. We hope this exhibition will serve as a reflection of our current moment, and as a poignant response to the alarming rise of anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation sweeping the nation.

Artist submissions are due on June 15, 2024 by 5pm. We welcome 2D, 3D, and electronic media that showcases experiences, emotions, and thoughts on the evolving struggle for LGBTQIA+ rights and representation. Artists located in the United States of all backgrounds, identities, and those exploring all narratives of genderqueerness are invited to apply. This exhibition will be juried by a diverse panel of arts professionals who identify as LGBTQIA+.
