Holga Invasion: Diana’s Counter-Attack

With the release of Ugly Beautiful Vol. 1 and the promise that Vol. 2 will be released in a much more timely manner, it’s time to consider a second season of Ugly Beautiful. This year, following the theme of working with what you have, it’s time to turn to our friend the humble toy camera. Specifically the Diana and Holga. For this collaboration, we will ask our participants to take up either a Holga or a Diana and create the ugliest beautiful images they can!

  • I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    2024-03-15 – 2025-01-05 · New York, United States of America
    I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    Taking its title from a drawing by artist and queer icon Candy Darling, this exhibition brings together a selection of works recently acquired by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art. Darling’s words evoke the multidimensionality of queer and trans life and artistic practices that insist on defining art and life entirely on one’s own terms. Taken together, the exhibited works–across various media and representational styles–embrace a spectral, prismatic approach to rendering LGBTQIA+ existence. Both contemporary and historical, the works elide the demand for authenticity and easy legibility, instead holding space for plurality, reinvention, and fantasy.

    FRAME[O]UT – Open-air Cinema in the MQ Vienna

    The FRAME[O]UT open-air film festival 2024 edition will take place every Friday and Saturday from July 12th to August 31st in the MuseumsQuartier, Vienna, Austria (free admission). The motto of the festival this year is “GARDEN”. Gardens are not just physical places; they reflect identities, dreams, and visions. They are deeply rooted in culture and demonstrate our connection to nature. In times of climate crisis, threatened biodiversity, and social injustice, Frameout 2024 transforms the GARDEN into a venue for change and familiar garden metaphors are reinterpreted through cinematic perspectives. In short film programs, we encounter talking plants, a giant asparagus, and secret gardens expressing fantasies and desires.
