Making Room For Wonder – 2008 2017-11-10T20:20:07+00:00
MAKING ROOM FOR WONDER
Curator: Tirza True Latimer; Assoc. Curator: Robert C. Melton
SomArts Galleries, San Francisco
June 1 – 30, 2008

Wonder opens horizons of possibility beyond the constraints of “nature” and “law.” It makes room for desire, for doubt, for dreams, for experimentation, for resistance, for things not known and considered unimaginable. Under the current totalitarian political regime, where options appear to close at every turn, wonder may still free the spirit and the mind to imagine and enact alternatives. This exhibition explores the territories that “wonder” may share with “queer.”
