Dirtstar 2011: Take Root
Despite queer histories of seeking less harmful ways of living lesbian lands, radical faeire lands, urban queer collectives- creative queer visions of sustainability are often missing in the current heteronormative 'green' movement.
In a third and final episode, Dirtstar 2011 will Take Root at the Tenderloin National Forest/Luggage Store Annex with a Visual Arts Residency. This show honors the lived experience of queers, our process of having to shift through the detritus of this culture to find ourselves, our herstories, our culture, and each other. The work showcased will consist of artwork that utilizes found objects, re/appropriated imagery, and re-contextualized traditions-- revealing how this work pushes queer culture and art forward.
With workshops and a culminating Performance Night, Dirtstar 2011: Take Root at the Tenderloin National Forest / Luggage Store Annex will showcase essential sustainable living skills that expand the world queers have been creating for decades.
