An Army of Lovers: Queer Power

May 1, 2016
12:20pm  -  12:35pm
High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

An Army of Lovers is an art project that rebroadcasts slogans & manifestoes, photographs & posters, protests & demands from queer liberation movements of the 20th century. Drawing from LGBTQ archives within and beyond the US, an Army of Lovers reactivates words and images of queer power, putting them back into circulation. It advocates for equality and the preservation of LGBTQ culture, in the face of injustice and assimilation. An Army of Lovers deploys its messages both online and through traditional grassroots means such as stickers and leaflets, from Twitter to the streets of Mexico City.
