KC Region
November 21, 2019
Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art - JCCC
Reception: 6 – 8 p.m, Lecture: 7 – 8 p.m.

Queer Abstraction features the work of 19 artists who create abstract art to convey thecomplexities of sexuality and gender identity in the 21st century. Alternative identities,desires and communities are explored through the artists’ manipulation of color, form, textureand materials. Many of these works defy the categories of painting or sculpture, while others camouflage reality in the guise of abstraction. Underlying the art is a fundamental and defiant commitment to pushing the limits of abstract art’s capability. Queer Abstraction invites allvisitors to leave preconceived notions of the body, sex, gender and love behind anddiscover abstraction’s queer possibilities. FREE admission.
