GLBTQ.COM MOUNTS EXHIBITION ENTITLED "PINK AND BENT: ART OF QUEER WOMEN"
Online Show Celebrates Contemporary Art by 24 Queer Women
PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST
(Chicago, December 4)--During the month of December, glbtq.com, the world's largest encyclopedia of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer (glbtq) culture, is celebrating contemporary art by queer women with an online exhibition entitled "Pink and Bent: Art of Queer Women."
glbtq.com's online presentation features the work of 24 artists, each of whom is profiled on the site. The working artists who participated in the show include emerging talents such as Maria Tsaguriya and Tara White along with established artists Gaye Chan, Marion Pinto, Hinda Schuman, and many others. The exhibition was first presented in New York City at the Leslie Lohman Gay Art Foundation gallery and is curated by Pilar Gallego and Cora Lambert. The curators selected the art and artists with an eye toward conveying the experience of being a queer women through art, which provides a method to "describe visually what is too complicated" to convey through language alone.
"It is exciting to see such a broad range of issues, visions, media, and artistic styles in one place. 'Pink and Bent' is an excellent visual introduction to the universe of art by queer women as it exists today," said Wik Wikholm, publisher of glbtq.com. "It is our hope that the online exhibition will help bring more attention to contemporary art by queer women since it so rarely gets the attention it deserves."
The exhibition will be featured on glbtq.com's home page throughout December and will remain available on the Web site indefinitely.
