looking for love in all the wrong places

DSCF0674looking for love in all the wrong places is an artist-curatorial project that commissions and disseminates limited edition silkscreen posters and multiples by queer artists for public spaces. When it began in 2006, the project was a call for collaboration and community building across a vast prairie geography, and it has since enabled queer dialogues and partnerships to emerge in public spaces in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Portland, Austin, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Berlin and beyond.

Collaborations with: Daryl Vocat (Toronto), Megan Morman and Cindy Baker (Saskatoon), Wednesday Lupypciw (Calgary), Carol Maxwell (Texas) and Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan (Winnipeg).

An archive of all posters produced from 2006 – 2010 appeared as part of Gestures of Resistance, curated by Shannon Stratton and Judith Leemann at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland in 2010.
