Zurich, Switzerland –– QUE(E)RIES was an interdisciplinary exhibition project discussing trends, joys and dilemmas in contemporary queer practices. Rather than showing 'classical' products of LGBTQ art, like Catherine Opie's photographic portraits of queer people or Tom of Finland's overtly gay drawings, the project aimed at visualizing and above all initiating relations and processes between people that might be designated as ‘queer’. Thus pivoting around the relational and dynamic, the exhibition focused on time-based artistic formats, like film, video, performance, workshops and informal talks. It included works by Ron Athey, Patty Chang, Cecilia Dougherty, Dan Fogel, Franko B, Ann Meredith, Wayne Yung, Pendra Wilson, Clark Nikolai, Vaginal Davis, Philippe Donadini, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Deborah Schamoni, Judith Hopf, among others. This exhibition was co-curated by Maura Reilly and Frederikke Hansen for the Shedhalle in Zurich.
