“Queerness is not yet here. Queerness is an ideality. We may never touch queerness, but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality. We have never been queer, yet queerness exists for us as an ideality that can be distilled from the past and used to imagine a future.”
-- José Esteban Muñoz, Cruising Utopia
A collaborative pop-up between Material Life and Mickalene Thomas, Femmes Féroces celebrates the creativity and originality of our collective community of femmes noires—who, borrowing from the 100 Black Females Project, we define as “…all who express and identify themselves as a woman, girl, femme, female, trans, queen on any day or all days,” according to Carla Williams.
The Contemporary Arts Center is pleased to invite contemporary visual artists living across the Gulf South to submit to this year's open call for submissions. Artists who currently live and work in LA, TX, AL, MS, FL are eligible to apply. Eligible artists living in Louisiana are encouraged to apply.
The exhibition will be on view at the CAC from July 18 until September 6, 2020. The deadline to submit work is April 8, 2020 at 11:59 pm CST.
