The Project Room announces that the QUEER ART NOW exhibition will officially open at 18h00 on 7 December 2022 at the The Project Room, Windhoek. The exhibition is open to all who wish to celebrate Art, Pride and Queer identities. All guests are asked to come dressed-to-impress, and the most impressive out-fit will be awarded a prize.
This diverse and exciting event features photography, fashion, painting, performance and much more. With artworks from, emerging, mid-career and established artists, this intergenerational exhibition provides a moment for reflection and recognition of how far we have come and how far we still have to go in the struggle for equality and freedom.
“Creativity is central to the Queer community and should be celebrated further. More visibility is a key factor in eradicating homophobia while also being vital for youth who might be struggling with their identity and sense of belonging” – Anne Lacheinerkuhn.
This exhibition is curated by Namibian artist Anne Lacheinerkuhn in collaboration with The Project Room and StArt Art Gallery. The exhibition will also feature designs from the recent logo design competition for Namibia Pride Week.
