possible selves: queer foto vernaculars
Horace Ballard, Assistant Curator
Living through extraordinary times guides humans to make extraordinary images. WCMA unveils the first major exhibition about the global impact of queer identities on the evolution of portrait photography. possible selves culls images from Instagram, ’zine culture, and YouTube to visualize personal experiences of transition, translation, transgression, and fluidity. Together, these images offer an aesthetic, authentic, and ultimately political understanding of postmodern desire.
