Fresh Fruitz is a presentation of juicy new works by members of Quellective. We are creating a queer space that embodies how we see, create, and inhabit our own bodies.
We are talking about queerness not as “other,” but as an opposite necessity. We mean queer as a rejection of—and a solution to—the norm; queer as a force opposing heteronormativity and white supremacy; queer as deconstruction and reconstruction; queer as explicitly more loud, messy, angry, hot, soft, and sensual; queer as performative by nature; queer as undeniable familiarity; queer as in chosen family. We mean queer as in self-aware, as in empathetic, as in communicating with a new and coded (body) language, as in unkillable.
This gallery will be made by and for queer people, a space that does not cater to the comfort of the heteronormative viewer. Fresh Fruitz means a sweet and tangy body of work ripe for the picking.
