The exhibit opens with a free reception and film screening on Thursday, December 6, from 6:30 – 9 p.m.
What exactly is queer art in the digital age? A series of artists create intimate works that ponder their identities in this wired world.

The exhibit’s opening reception will be preceded by a screening of five short films examining identities and desires though comedy, documentary, animation, and abstraction in the Center’s Renberg Theatre. Films include:
• from this side of space to the other side of the signal by Benjamin Rosenthal
• 3CE: A Relationship Love Odyssey by Jennifer Moon
