About #TheGalleryProject

#TheGalleryProject presents selected drawings, prints, photographs, comics, collages and installations by 47 queer artists from 27 countries in different locations worldwide.

Rurru Mipanochia’s drawings, sweet and colorful at first glance, reveal insights into the pre-colonial landscape of gender in Mexico. Duo Tim and Candra cope with the varying obstacles and desires of a cis and a trans woman in Indonesia in their almost eerie three-color photos. Ihar Paulau’s work ‘Flower Scars’ relates the human body to patterns found in nature, displaying a cultivated sense of intimacy and vulnerability. In his comics, Umba from St. Petersburg depicts amusing scenes from the everyday life of a trans man. Giegold & Weiß from Berlin use their installation ‘Lachanschlag’ to laugh at the tireless discrimination in institutions, government and otherwise.

#TheGalleryProject invites you to engage with the diverse realities presented in these and quite a few other works, some of which you can find in this catalog. The collection is distinctive in its absence of a unifying theme: each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically. Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works display sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.

Offline exhibitions have taken place in Tallinn (Estonia), Sofia (Bulgaria), Podgorica (Montenegro) and Prague (Czech Republic) in 2017. In 2018 there was an exhibition in Berlin, Germany.
