All the Fabulous Things from Queering Dreams
There's a whole world of fabulousness that's a part of the Queering Dreams Network
Queering Dreams is a community-expanding network of artists, comrades, and neighbors working to disrupt patterns of behavior that seek punishment, shame, and conformity through co-creating virtual spaces of belonging, intimacy, deep relations, and pleasure.
A Recipe for Brown Skin
Rupy C. Tut’s A Recipe for Brown Skin is showing at the Triton Museum of Santa Clara through May 1, 2022. On Saturday, March 19, 2022 at 10am PST, Rupy will be in virtual conversation with Jason Wyman / Queerly Complex (and Co-Founder of Queering Dreams) about vulnerability, craft and community. Tickets range from $0 to $40, and the event will happen over Zoom. You can follow Rupy on Instagram and see behind-the-scenes on how she crafts her exquisitely detailed paintings, including making her own pigments.
Rupy is also a Co-Founder of the Immigrant Artist Network, a program of Queering Dreams. We still have a few spaces open for our upcoming Virtual Artist Salons for Immigrant Artists (and artists who are their comrades). This unique, cohort-based professional development series runs March 24 to June 30, 2022, and provides opportunities to share works-in-progress, develop language about their art & practice, and seek opportunities for collaboraiton. Best of all? It’s available free of charge thanks to our wonderful volunteers Rupy, Jason, Kiana Honarmand, Han Qin, and Momos Cheeskos.
Artist-Comrade Midori has a brand new sculpture being installed in just a few days at Arcana, a new wine bar and plant shop on Mission and 21st Streets in San Franisco, called Tectonic. It depicts the seven tectonic plants as woven sculpture and inverts, which plates are brought into the viewers focus. Hung above people’s head, Tectonic asks the viewers to look up and shifts the map from one that is known to one that is questioned.
Tectonic Shift, an artist reception co-hosted by Queerly Complex, is on Saturday, March 19, 2022, from 3pm to 6pm at Arcana (2512 Mission Street, San Francisco) with global sounds provided by DJ Tom Axe. The Reception is a fabulous way to connect with Midori & Queering Dreams Co-Founders Crystal Mason & Jason Wyman.
A Space for Dreaming: All Our Relations - THIS FRIDAY (3/11/22)
Our next A Space for Dreaming session is THIS FRIDAY, March 11, 2022. Zoom opens at 5:30pm PST / 8:30pm EST. The session runs about 80 minutes and there is time at the beginning and end for casual arrival and departure.
This month, we will be dreaming about All Our Relations. We open by ground in equity and naming the land on which we reside, how we arrived on this land, and who our relations are. We will then share more about Queering Dreams’ value of camaraderie among our relations & relationships. Then, we give space to dream and time to reflect. There is a bit of conversation among triads. And some large group sharing. Those who attend feel seen and heard and a renewed sense that dreams are possible.
