SF Camerawork's Fall Exhibition
Suggestions of a Life Being Lived
Suggestions of a Life Being Lived, guest curated by Chicago-based curator Danny Orendorff and San Francisco native Adrienne Skye Roberts for SF Camerawork, presents queerness as a set of political alliances and possibilities, informed by the projects of 16 artists working in photography, film, video, activism and education. Untethered to institutions of sexual or gender normativity and in pursuit of greater freedoms, the work in this exhibition represents queer activism, intentional and imagined communities, self-determinism, and DIY alternative world-making.
Suggestions of a Life Being Lived begins from a place of “outness” and considers how a sense of liberated queerness is pursued and mediated within public spaces and behaviors. Less concerned with categorical sexual identities or coming-out narratives, this exhibition presents work that looks outward towards collective and resistant expressions of queer community existing outside of dominant gay and lesbian culture.
