Fresh Meat Productions’ Third Annual Fresh Meat in the Gallery is an historic exhibition of visual art by transgender, genderqueer and gender variant artists. Featuring sculpture, photography, paintings, mixed media and crafts from around the world, the annual exhibit runs June 4-30, 2006 at ODC Theater Gallery.
Fresh Meat in the Gallery creates a visual dialogue about gender, the body and society. It is a conversation with and about subjects often left unseen or undiscussed, both within the queer community and society at large. Featured artist and genderqueer printmaker Emmett Ramstad says, “This artwork is about me, my community, changing bodies, my body.”
Fresh Meat in the Gallery Curators / Production Team: Billie Mandel (Exhibitions Coordinator), Bobby Cheung, Sean Dorsey, Eddie Gesso, Stacy Jackson, Mim Weisburd.
