Off-Centre: Queer Contemporary Art in the Prairies aims to destabilize urban/rural and centre/margin binaries by presenting engaging and politically relevant work by queer artists from and/or currently living in the Canadian Prairies. The exhibition addresses issues of gender, sexuality and regionalism through an intersectional lens, and investigates the possibility of queering the “Prairie Gothic” aesthetic by presenting fantastical, playful, imaginary and surreal representations of the human form. 

The exhibition will be open until Wednesday, September 18 and will close with a performance by Cindy Baker, Crash Pad, at 7:30 pm.

Crash Pad is part of Queer City Cinema’s Performatorium 7: Bad (Ass) Bodies.
