ABOUT GENERATION QUEER:

Generation Queer explores human intimacy within the digital age of American LGBQT culture. Curated by the Griffin Gallery committee, this show emerges a diverse and multi-personal narrative of queer millennials.

In contemporary culture, millennials have eliminated the stigmas that correlated with the word “QUEER”. Western American queer culture is a growing sub-culture that flourishes with the concept of acceptance amongst one another. While young adults have accepted queerness as a normality, individuals continue to struggle to exist with outdated traditions and rules of society. The question of personal identity arises within the queer community. Even as we transition into an accepting society, we continue to exist off a system of labels. With the aid of the Internet comes an innovative mindset when looking at how we partake in or refuse to engage in traditional relationships. In this space, artists are given the freedom to digest the positive and negative factors of their role in society as someone who associates with the “Queer” label.
