RARE & RAW
Feb 15 - Mar 31, 2013
The 2013 Queer Caucus Exhibition for the College Art Association
This exhibition explores queer history by examining notions of power, sexuality, history, and the queer gaze. Connecting Canadian and American artists of different generations, it engages the past to illuminate issues that affect queer lives and queer representations today.
Rare & Raw was made possible with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Queer Caucus for Art, an affiliated society of the College Art Association.
