Queer Spectra Arts Festival 2020
September 5 - September 6
Queer Spectra Arts Festival is a multidisciplinary LGBTQ+ arts festival dedicated to making space for queer artists to showcase their works and share their ideas with the greater Salt Lake community. . This year’s festival features artworks by over 20 different artists from across the country. Their works focus on the theme, “The Risk of Representation,” interrogating the importance of LGBTQ+ representation in art, which is often considered taboo or is subject to censure. The Festival will host a virtual gallery for audiences to explore over the course of the weekend. Additionally, audiences can experience live-streamed dance performances, as well as an online workshop, two artist panel discussions, and a live-streamed keynote presentation by dance maker Ya-Ya Fairley.
