elisha lim interview

"Elisha Lim’s work is a part of the Generations of Queer exhibit at Onsite [at] OCAD University. Curated by Lisa Deanne Smith, the exhibition (which also features the work of Robert Flack, John Greyson and Kiley May) is about storytelling and raising a public voice, exactly as you are."

Love that phrase!! All the info and a short interview with Elisha, including tales of being rejected from art schools then making amazing art work anyway (yesss), here:

Help get 'Passage & Place' to incarcerated queers

Lex Non Scipta writes: "Loves! Rebels! Brilliant creatives! Abolitionists! Annah Anti-Palindrome and I have just launched a campaign to raise money to publish the Passage & Place anthology. Help us carve out a place that turns up the volume on voices of "free world" and incarcerated queers writing on class, borders, identity, privilege, the prison system, memory, and so much more!"

Indigogo link:

PASSAGE & PLACE is a multimedia visual arts exhibition, book project, and skillshare series that explores displacement & movement, freedom & incarceration, and home & im/migration at the intersection of queerness.
For the PASSAGE & PLACE print project we have compiled a collection of written and visual artwork from queer and trans folx both inside and outside of prison, that consider and complicate the topic of "Home".
As part of reaching beyond walls, we partnered with the TGI (Transgender | Gender Variant | Intersex) Justice Project/TGIJP and Black & Pink to send the Passage & Place call for submissions to currently incarcerated LGBTQ prisoners.
The anthology will be released in conjunction with the Passage & Place exhibition at the National Queer Arts Festival, 2014.
