Wonder opens horizons of possibility beyond the constraints of “nature” and “law.” It makes room for desire, for doubt, for dreams, for experimentation, for resistance, for things not known and considered unimaginable. Under the current totalitarian political regime, where options appear to close at every turn, wonder may still free the spirit and the mind to imagine and enact alternatives. This exhibition explores the territories that “wonder” may share with “queer.”

The show, curated by Tirza True Latimer with the assistance of Robert Melton and sponsored by the National Queer Arts Festival, features work in a broad range of media by an international roster of artists:
