National Queer Arts Festival presents Second Helpings

Second Helpings is a group visual art exhibition, a "fatinee" of multidisciplinary performance, and a queer intervention into American popular culture's understanding of the fat body as a deviant body. Exhibiting artists fight the stigmatization of fat bodies, radically re-envision the notion of body diversity, and destabilize deeply embedded hierarchies of desire.

Second Helpings features works in many media by 20 visual artists, and 7 solo and ensemble performances. Selected works deconstruct and reassess body politics to foster a collective understanding of fatness that empowers and heals fat-bodied people emotionally, sexually and politically.

A new theatrical work humorously addresses the correlation between body shame and cultural imperialism. A 5-piece band named after pastries snacks ritualistically onstage. A debut video work explores racialized and gendered experiences of fat-phobia. A chubby drag queen pushes back on the ways her body is treated as a dystopian object of desire. Come ravenous. Help yourself.

Tickets for the Second Helpings Performance Fatinee are now sold out. Any purchased tickets not claimed by 6:20pm will be released for purchase in cash at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. The box office opens at 5:30pm.

If you weren't able to get a ticket to the performance, please note that there is a free visual art reception for Second Helpings from 2pm5pm on the same day, Saturday, June 7th. It is free an open to all. For a list of exhibiting visual artists, visit www.somarts.org/secondhelpings
