_ChronotopiaChronotopia: The Past, Present and Future of Queer Histories
June 5 – 26th, 2010
SOMArts Gallery and Cultural Center
San Francisco, California

 


Chronotopia Curatorial Statement

This exhibition captures the multiple dimensions of queer time and place; locates queer lives in relation to complex communities; and remembers historical moments that are framed and re-framed by the present. It also offers alternative approaches to the historical record that challenge a fixed chronology of events and complicate the idea of memory.

The exhibition’s multidimensional visions of our queer history suggest limitless potentialities and vantage points, where conflicting desires and narratives coexist, where ghosts converse with the living, where we imagine impossible possibilities, and where we record our histories in new and challenging ways–Chronotopia.

Meet and mingle with artists from California and beyond over reception drinks and nosh! Performances during the reception by members of E.G. Crichton’s LINEAGE: Matchmaking in the Archive project sponsored by the the GLBT Historical Society. Exhibition and reception funding by the Zellerbach Family Foundation and the CA LGBT Arts Alliance.

CHRONOTOPIA is presented as part of the SOMArts Affordable Space Program. SOMArts receives funding from the San Francisco Arts Commission with support from Grants for the Arts / Hotel Tax Fund.

Curators: Cherly Dunye, Tirza True Latimer, Rudy Lemcke, Matt McKinley,  Pamela Peniston and Tina Takemoto
Lineage Curator: EG Crichton
Exhibition Co-ordinator: Adrienne Skye Roberts
Exhibition Design – Matt McKinley
