About the Exhibition: Queer Landscapes, Queer Intersections is an art exhibition exploring the landscape of LGBTQ social issues and identities from an intersectional perspective. Intersectionality is a concept increasingly used to understand complex social equity issues through relationships of power and privilege. This perspective recognizes that it is not sufficient to view dimensions of identity and diversity in isolation, and that the intersection of social identities is critical to understanding social realities and impacts on individuals and communities.
The exhibition showcases work by artists from communities across Ontario exploring how LGBTQ social issues and identities intersect with those related to race, gender, ethnicity, religion, age, ability, class, family structure, sexual and mental health, and other dimensions of potential discrimination, marginalization or stigma. Works represent a diverse range of voices by Ontario-based LGBTQ artists working in a variety of artistic media.
Artists: Barry Ace, Kia Agnew, Razmig Bertizian, Frantz Brent-Harris, Jayal Chung, Patrick DeCoste, Leo Dias, Pamela Dodds, Michel Dumont, Yara El Safi, Alex Flores, R. Bruce Flowers, Ashley Grenstone, Nickolas Hadzis, Nidhi Handa, Samantha Jones, Fiona Legg, Julius Poncelet Manapul, Andrew McPhail, Alex Murphy, Emily Norry, Yalda Pashai, Shawn Postoff, Sean Ross, Eszter Rosta, Gordon Shadrach, Shira Spector, Maximilian Suillerot, Natalie Wood and Stephanie Wu.
