The show attempts to interrupt the idea of a singular queer community, and reimagines what it means to talk about our lived experiences as artists from a diversity of backgrounds. Launched on the eve of World Pride 2014, the project necessarily responds to the construction of a simplified “LGBT” community in Toronto as posited in the bid for hosting the festival.
As Toronto launches onto the world stage of LGBTTI2QQ activism, That’s So Gay: On the Edge will creatively explore difference through photography, performance, installation projects and large-scale works on paper. Participating Artists: Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, Daryl James Bucar, Graham Kennedy, Anna Jane McIntyre, Hazel Meyer, Abdi Osman, Alvis Choi/Parsley, Elizabeth Sweeney, Jes Sachse, Rebeka Tabobondung, Mary Tremonte, Leah Lakshmi Piepsna-Samarasinha, Shimby Zegeye. Curated by Syrus Marcus Ware.
