This exhibition, presented by the Queer Cultural Center as part of the National Queer Arts Festival, captures the multiple dimensions of queer time and place; locates queer lives in relation to complex communities; and remembers historical moments that are framed and re-framed by the present. It also offers alternative approaches to the historical record that challenge a fixed chronology of events and complicate the idea of memory.

The exhibition’s multidimensional visions of our queer history suggest limitless potentialities and vantage points, where conflicting desires and narratives coexist, where ghosts converse with the living, where we imagine impossible possibilities, and where we record our histories in new and challenging ways.

CHRONOTOPIA is presented as part of the SOMArts Affordable Space Program. SOMArts receives funding from the San Francisco Arts Commission with support from Grants for the Arts / Hotel Tax Fund.
