Queering Democracy: Art, Identity, And Politics In 2024 – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) and ImageOut Art seek artist submissions for Queering Democracy: Art, Identity, And Politics In 2024, a juried exhibition opening in Rochester, New York, in October 2024.

Queer art has achieved greater prominence in recent years, yet the LGBTQIA+ community’s struggle for freedom and equality persists. RoCo hopes 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.

For Queering Democracy, RoCo welcomes 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.

Accepted artists will receive a stipend to help offset the cost of production or transport of their work. RoCo’s community consists of a membership base of over 1,000 artists and art-appreciators, and many non-members who visit regularly and support their exhibitions. They offer a wide range of promotion, including daily social media posts, weekly newsletters, and posts to a variety of art and news websites. RoCo hopes to support both familiar faces and new artists through this exhibition and introduce their important artwork to RoCo’s audience.
