Visions of Southern Queer Resistance
May 27 | 7p-9p
May 27 - June 12, 2022
The Arts Center
Free & Open For Public Viewing
Empowering and uplifting the QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous People of Color) experience, Southern Equality Studios highlight the works of 20 Southern QTBIPOC artists to emphasize the pivotal role of Black queer and trans creatives in the push for liberation. Their resistance underscores the need for solidarity throughout communities that are unequivocally marginalized by way of systemic oppression.
The basic understanding that creativity can not only be used as a means of exploring the intersections of identity, but also as a catalyst to affect substantial change within society. Viewers of the exhibition are encouraged to thoroughly consider the role they personally assume in relation to movements that call for the decolonization of our social structures and the empowerment of underserved communities.

All art is, is an expression of the artists consciousness and therein what they find beautiful in the broadest meaning of the word.
