FagSigns is pleased to present a group exhibition featuring new neon works by a broad spectrum of queer artists in a collective declaration of where the LGBTQ community has been and is heading toward - “Collaborations with Queer Voices.”
Neon is a bygone marketing tool that advertises, announces or points to something or somewhere. Language is an increasingly important aspect of the LGBTQ ecosystem. By marrying the two, Fagsigns invited ten artists -- whose identities and work span a full spectrum of age, gender, race, and medium -- to meditate on a word or phrase, and unpack that language into light. The resulting works produced yet another spectrum; yielding some works with a visual language that is confrontationally charged, and others more subtle and lyrical in nature.
“Collaborations with Queer Voices” opened June 27th and closed August 9th at Heller Gallery in New York, New York to celebrate NYC Pride, World Pride, and 50 years of Stonewall. This exhibition will travel to SOFA Chicago, Sculptural Objects Functional Expo in the Fall of 2019 and then forwarded to a venue TBA in 2020.
