Slippery and Subversive is a queer centered show hosted by Grey Gallery.

Spectral Matter is an ongoing curatorial project focusing on queer issues and the LGBTQ+ population. This year’s exhibition, Slippery and Subversive seeks to highlight artworks which blur the lines between binary concepts of identification through a queer lens. Work selected for this exhibition takes a position of ambiguity, slippage, and deconstruction as an avenue to redefine the relationship between body and object.

  • LGBTQ artists and allies
  • adornment, craft, sculpture 
  • Deadline November 1st



The collective artists for this project provide a range of histories, categories, systems, and narratives linked by a common interest in adornment, objecthood, and utility. LGBTQ+ artists and allies creating work in adornment, craft, and sculpture that falls within the theme of Slippery and Subversive are encouraged to apply.
