Queer | Art | Pride 2018
This is our second year organizing Queer|Art|Pride, which is presented as part of Pride@Wythe, an annual takeover of the Wythe Hotel’s multiple event spaces during Pride Week, with parties and performances and screenings and other good stuff, organized in partnership with various LGBTQ orgs and promoters. Queer|Art will again be taking over the Wythe’s beautiful downstairs jewel box cinema/theater, which seats 70 people and has a private bar.
Our focus for Queer|Art|Pride is to celebrate recently completed work by graduates of the Mentorship program (now entering its eighth year) and to create a space for taking risks among friends. Over the course of two nights, Queer|Art will present three programs – QA|Pride: Live (hosted by Moe Angelos of The Five Lesbian Brothers) on June 21st; QA|Pride: Cinema (featuring a work-in-progress viewing of a new film by Rodrigo Bellott) on June 22nd; and the QA|Pride: Alumni Art Jam (hosted by The Illustrious Blacks) also on June 22nd.
Queer|Art|Pride will showcase new and recent work by Queer|Art alumni: Camilo Godoy, Melissa Li, Tommy Pico, Nicole Goodwin, Justin Sayre, Justine Williams, Sasha Wortzel, Morgan Bassichis, Samantha Nye, Guadalupe Rosales, Eva Peskin, Kerry Downey, and Michael de Angelis (with ANIMALS), and their collaborators.
