The Boston LGBTQIA Artist Alliance’s Summer 2017 Exhibition will be an exploration and celebration of the cultural value and significance of the arts in light of the current political climate. Harking back to the “NEA Four” and the conservative establishment’s attack on arts funding in the 80s/90s, the imminent future promises to be a historical moment in which the arts are again directly challenged. History repeats itself. This exhibition serves as a platform for LGBTQIA artists to engage with this moment in their own unique and distinctive voices. Work can range from revolutionary to visionary, from angry to celebratory, from local to global. How do we make art when there are urgent political crises taking place around us? What makes art important and vital, to ourselves and to others? How do we respond when threatened? Overall, the show will function as part of a larger collective conversation about the necessity of the arts in society. Work will be accepted in any medium, including performance. BLAA is a Boston based LGBTQIA group committed to providing support, resources, and community to artists.
