We had the honor of welcoming Dr. Raul Moarquech Ferrera-Balanquet, Co-Executive Director at the Howard University Gallery of Art, to our current exhibition, QUEEROTICA. During his visit, the term 'Queer' triggered a flood of memories of his experience navigating the art world as a young gay creative. He recounted the discriminatory practices that many organizations openly exercised, revealing that it wasn't all rainbows and unity back then (and still isn't now).
Dr. Ferrera-Balanquet graciously shared his insight with us, shedding light on the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community within the art industry. His visit served as a reminder of the importance of creating inclusive spaces that celebrate diversity and promote equality.
