The Associated Students’ Art Gallery Presents
September 8, 2017 – September 22, 2017
Opening Reception: September 8, 2017, 5pm-8pm
Drawing from digital culture movements and resistance practices, Queer Virality centers queer womxn, femmes and gender nonconforming artists of color, and the ways in which they heal, resist, create space, and transcend the realms of opposition. In naming queer into the viral, the mainstream, this multimedia exhibit proposes critical interventions into the binary logics of race, gender, sexuality, and more broadly, the social confines of our known reality.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
In lucid moments of stress or pain, the appendix is an organ whose unread cultural histories push their way into significance, carrying weight on an overlooked past, present and future. Showcasing work from ten emerging Asian American women and queer artists, the exhibition activates personal and intimate narratives of mental and historical trauma, while bravely reclaiming and empowering intergenerational memories as part of the world we live in today.
