Queer|Art's 2nd Annual Fair with 30+ Participating Artists
***Extended through July 31st***
Organized as the centerpiece of Queer|Art|Pride 2020, this year's Queer|Art|Pride Book & Print Fair has been transformed into a digital marketplace, featured on Queer|Art's website from June through July. Curated in the spirit of abundance, the marketplace features an incredible diversity of works for perusal and purchase, including (but not limited to) artist books, novels, zines, poetry chapbooks, drawings, photographs, watercolors, garments, collages, and prints. 100% of sales benefit the artists.

What: Queer|Art|Pride Book & Print Fair
When: June 1st–July 31st, 8-10pm EST

The online marketplace is accompanied by live Queer|Art|Pride Book & Print Fair SHOW 'N TELLS, taking place over Zoom on July 6th & 27th from 8-10pm EST, where artists will perform readings of excerpted works, offer a show-and-tell of works for sale, and more.

Originally planned to close after June, the 2020 Queer|Art|Pride Book & Print Fair has been extended through the month of July to accommodate our artists’ shifting priorities at this time. The decision comes as part of Queer|Art’s efforts to reconfigure scheduled programming for Queer|Art|Pride 2020 in recognition of the Black Lives Matter movement and the protests against police brutality, white supremacy, transphobia, and the prison system. As a white-led organization that serves Black LGBTQ+ artists, Queer|Art recently shared a statement of accountability along with respective calls to action and Black and trans-led organizations to support. Please see more here

Here's a sneak peek of some of the artists and works you'll see: 

2016-2017 QAM Fellow Heather Lynn Johnson is a writer, photographer, performance artist and poet. Her work is characterized by her lyrical approach to exploring otherness in a consumerist society, and her willingness to lay bare her own existence. Available for purchase at the Book & Print Fair is Johnson's SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR QUEER BLACK YOUTH, a paean to the pain and triumph of being queer, black, and young that combines wry observation with intimate confession.
2019-2020 QAM Mentor Lola Flash uses photography to challenge stereotypes and offer new ways of seeing that transcend and interrogate gender, sexual, and racial norms. For the Book & Print Fair, Flash is selling a series of metal photograph prints. The images are part of a powerful body of work reflecting on the peak of the AIDS crisis in New York City.
2018-2019 QAM Fellow Daniel Chew's table will be fully stocked with an exquisite array of clothing from the CFGNY brand, which began as an ongoing dialogue between Tin Nguyen and Daniel Chew on the intersection of fashion, race, identity and sexuality. All items are from the collection "Surface Trend," which considers the transnational development of an island off the coast of Vietnam that was formerly an open air prison camp in the American War and is currently transitioning to a beach vacation hot spot replete with tourist attractions and casinos.
Amigxs is a zine of photographs by 2012-2013 QAM Fellow Camilo Godoy of friends and lovers. The title is a gender-neutral alternative to the Spanish word for “friends.” Up for sale are the second and third volumes of the intimate publication.

...and much, much, more!
