Drawn from the Center for Art and Thought's virtual exhibition, Queer Sites and Sounds explores the possibilities of queer engagement across multiple virtual spaces and showcases queer new media and digital interventions The works included here and online challenge and exceed how Filipino bodies, affects, and processes are conventionally understood and how they are entangled with other queer bodies and practices virtually and offline.
The Queer Sites and Sounds exhibition at Culver Center of the arts features work by Eliza Barrios, Kiam Marcelo Junio, Kat Larson, Miguel Libarnes, Gina Osterloh, Jeffrey Augustine Songco, and Ronaldo Wilson. The symposium will feature the curator of the exhibition and its artists. Works by additional artists may be found online at www.centerforartandthought.org.
