Queer|Art is pleased to announce the twelve Fellows accepted for the 2022 Queer|Art|Mentorship program cycle, and the Mentors with whom they will be working with:
Antonius-Tin Bui with Mentor, Lola Flash (Visual Art)
Utē Petit with Mentor, Jeffrey Gibson (Visual Art)
agustine zegers with Mentor, Constantina Zavitsanos (Visual Art)
Now in its 11th year, the organization’s celebrated year-long creative and professional development program expands nationally for the first time, supporting both remote and in-person participation between early-career and established LGBTQ+ artists from across the country. In expanding nationally, Queer|Art|Mentorship bridges professional and social thresholds that often isolate artists by generation, discipline, and region. The 2022 cohort is made up of Mentors and Fellows participating across ten states: California, Connecticut, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Vermont, and Virginia.
The program supports a year-long exchange between emerging and established LGBTQ+ artists across four distinct fields—Film, Literature, Performance, and Visual Art. Fellows apply with a specific project they would like to work on during the program and meet each month with their Mentors to discuss their progress in the lead-up to this event. Fellows also meet each month as a group to learn from and provide support for one another throughout the year.
