Veronica Leto, Bridget Bailey, Rae Yo Young

Zeitgeist is pleased to present Queer Futurity, guest curated by Brooke Hoffert of FEMME Gallery. This exhibit opens to the public on November 5, 2022, 12-6pm. It will be on view through November 23.

Statement:

In Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity José Esteban Muñoz explores the concept of queer futurity through the lens of Ernst Bloch where they state, “Queerness is not yet here. Queerness is an ideality. Put another way, we are not yet queer. We may never touch queerness but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality.” This warm feeling consists of dreams for a queer future where our most outlandish, utopianistic, safe, equal, and queer visions can become a reality.

This utopianistic potentiality can be seen in works by Bridget Bailey, Veronica Leto, and Rae Yo Young. These three artists explore the idea of queer futurity through various mediums.
