Antwerp Queer Arts Festival - Opening expo Out of Focus - 20h...
Expo will be on view during the entire festival (1 - 12 Aug), daily from 12:00—17:00 - free Gallery Verbeeck - Van Dyck? The queer community has long existed out of focus from mainstream society. Whether pushed away to the margins or hiding in plain sight, visibility and representation have long been too absent for various facets of queer. In this year’s exhibition, organized in Gallery Verbeeck-Van Dyck, the Antwerp Queer Arts Festival explores notions of (in)visibility, hiding and uncovering that are a substantial part of everyday queer life. In the presented works, visibility is positioned between a basic human necessity with which to find agency, and a potential hazard. Some works in their own right serve as a vehicle to make visible often underrepresented components of the queer community. By programming a range of artists from different geographical areas and places within the queer community, the Antwerp Queer Arts Festival aims to contemplate the positive and potentially negative consequences of visibility and being in focus. Including works by Conny Karlsson Lundgren, Leah DeVun, Nabil Vega, Pierre Liebaert & Hannah Dawn Henderson. More info via website Antwerp Queer Arts Festival (1 - 12 Augustus) is an international arts festival, questioning gender and sexual diversity, that takes place each year at the beginning of August. Entering its fifth edition, each year we have programmed both local performers and international talent within a variety of art forms: music, literature, film, dance, theatre, expositions, performance.This festival is more than an arts festival. Collaborating with academia and activists, we create a space and a platform for people to express themselves and to meet others. The festival is a grassroots initiative by the Antwerp Pink House, the local LGBT+ umbrella organization. It relies on community support to create the spaces and representation that we need. Your ticket purchase directly supports queer performers.
