Don't Look Away: Artist Talk

  • SPACE Gallery 538 Congress Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Join us for this special Artist Talk with Outright youth artists/organizers about their Pride 2018 SPACE Gallery Window Installation, which runs June 9-16th.

Outright is taking over the SPACE Window June 9-16th for Pride! Our crew of community artist/organizers have designed an installation fit for queer heaven--queer history in our hearts, queer liberation in our sights. Join us for this FREE artist talk to hear directly from this crew.

**This event is FREE but space is limited. RSVP to portlandoutright@gmail.com to reserve your seat.**

Don't Look Away honors the legacy of LGBTQ+ youth organizing by highlighting historic examples of direct action artwork, combined with pieces by Outright members who use arts-based community organizing to connect with each other across systems while working towards justice and liberation. From Stonewall to ACT UP, from the streets of Portland to the backrooms of Long Creek Youth Development Center, queer and trans young people on the frontlines of struggle, have always been the heart of Pride. We are building the world we know is possible—one moment of care, one act of resistance, one installation at a time.
