hello, world!


hello, world!
Dec 4, 2015 – Mar 2, 2016
Artspace, New Haven, CT
Curator: J.R. Uretsky

hello, world!
is an exhibition that explores how a queer identity can function as a clear projection of self while simultaneously resisting and reframing normative definitions of identity. The 
complex, humorous and deeply personal approaches each artist brings to the exhibition offers a visual syntax of queer experiences.  The title hello, world! reminds us that language is learned, tested, reframed and hopefully — hacked.

This exhibition is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Audrey Conrad.
