A group exhibition from October 4 until November 3, curated by Razan Al Salah and Hilal Khalil at the Flux Factory in New York City, seeks multi-disciplinary forms of contemporary art from Kweer ( ریوك ,( queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or gender non-conforming people who have ties to what is colloquially known al-‘ālam al-‘arabī ( يبرعلا ملاعلا ,( also known as South West Asia and North Africa (SWANA) and the respective diaspora ( رجھملا ( to be exhibited in a month-long exhibition at Flux Factory, New York City.
One side of the conversation is represented in “coming out”, an often cookie-cutter narrative pushed out by the globalized mainstream. Another side is represented by patriarchal ideologies in the region which deem “queerness” a western construct and one form of the colonization of our societies. This exhibition calls for work that adds nuance to this dichotomy through personal and political work.
This can take the form of musical performance, stand-up comedy, sound installation, food art, dinner party, dance party, karaoke, human megaphone, sidewalk chalking, mail art, chain letter, mixtapes, site specific installations, flyering, apps, virtual reality technology (oculus rift, Google cardboard, etc.), web art, workshops, walking tours, t-shirts/merchandise, poetry readings, zines, film screenings, theatrical performances, as well as any 2D/3D/4D works, etc.
