does one decipher a queer body? Today, there exist more options than
ever to express oneself through the canvas of the body. People
identifying as queer have not always been in a position to publicize
their queerness, but as the demarcations of gender and sexuality
continue to shift and melt away, the freedom and opportunity for
expression are increasing. This exhibition demonstrates
the ways queerness expresses itself through the body in a multitude of
ways; at times it is invisible to the eye, at other times it is more
subtle or completely transparent, but always transgressive and
a group exhibition of queer identified artists, reflects on matters
pertinent to a queer body and the ways it is perceived, acknowledged or
misunderstood. The artists in Queerity make
visible an internal experience through an array of external mediums
from photography to sculpture. Their work, like their bodies, act
subversively against gender norms still in place throughout much of the
world and offer up diverse perspectives about queerness and what it
means to identify as such.

Fishes Arts Collective is a Mission District-based live/work arts
collective comprised of a diverse group of artists dedicated to working
collaboratively. Million Fishes creates an environment for artists to
develop critical skills to engage in the processes involved in
producing art and sharing it. The collective is a resource to the
diverse community of the Mission District, as well as the communities
of our resident artists. Programs include innovative exhibitions of
work by members and non-members, an artist-in-residence program for
sixteen artists from international backgrounds, and classes and
workshops open to the public.
