Queer State of Mind
Queer State of Mind was created by and for the Gender and Sexuality Center and the communities it serves. All of the pieces in the exhibition were made in the Center by students who have engaged over the years. This is the first time the GSC displayed this amount of art from the archives. In order to be relevant with current museums and other exhibitions, the space includes a participatory installation that invites guests to add their own creative elements to the walls as they answer the question: What’s YOUR state of mind?
This exhibition is very timely as it represents two very important themes that many LGBTQIA+ people encounter: visibility and invisibility. The erasure of our identities by institutions and systems of oppression has always been a struggle. May the vibrant colors, abstract images, and creative expression lift you up, prompt questions and interpretations that are as varied as our own identities.
