The Queer Caucus for Art’s annual exhibition in conjunction with the College Art Association (CAA) conference.

RR2

 

A combination of archival photography, contemporary installation, drawings, ephemera, and video exploring themes of queer history, visibility, and representation. Works by senior artists are paired with younger counterparts to show different ways in which inter-generational artists engage with similar issues. 

Connecting Canadian and American artists of different generations, it engages the past to illuminate issues that affect queer lives and queer representations today.

 Rare & Raw was made possible with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Queer Caucus for Art, an affiliated society of the College Art Association.

G. B. JONES, Prison Breakout #1, 1991, Graphite on paper, 9.00″ x 7.00″

A curated exhibition exploring Queer representation, historical visual culture and contemporary art production.

Queer communities are experiencing an overwhelming gap between older and younger generations—due to technology and generational lifestyles as well as the many lives decimated by AIDS. The past remains integral to Queer epistemology and representation.

Artists: Tom of Finland, G.B. Jones, William E. Jones, Zoe Leonard, Nina Levitt, Tara Mateik, Kent Monkman and Will Munro.

 

 

Rare & Raw contains a combination of contemporary installations, archival photographs, drawings, ephemera and video.

The exhibition conceptually sequences works based on themes such as power, sexuality, history and the Queer gaze. Co-curaors Steph Rogerson and Kelly McCray are pairing the works of more senior artists with their younger counterparts in order to cast light upon the different ways in which inter-generational artists engage with the same issues.
