Artists in Residence at Destiny Arts Center visited the SOMArts’ exhibition Visions into Infinite Archives exhibition to add their voices to the archive through creative responses. Below you can find links to all of their responses, which range from poetry to visual art and song. Visions Into Infinite Archives, a group exhibition curated by Black Salt Collective and on view January 14–February 10, 2016, honors the non-linearity of time and creates an interactive and infinite archive of universal depths.
The Emerging Artist Residency is a 3-month paid residency at Destiny Arts Center that cultivates the artist growth of LGBTQQI2-S (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, two-spirit) identified performing artists ages 18-24. Led by mentor teaching artists, Indira Allegra and India Davis, residents work through a collaborative process to create solo and group performances that include storytelling, spoken word, movement, and theater. The residency culminates in a community showcase on April 22nd and 23rd.
The Queer Emerging Artist Residency is specifically designed for LGBTQQIA2-S identified artists of color and their white allies who are interested in utilizing art and performance as tools for social change.
