Jeremy Novy

Don't miss one of the first collections featuring queer graffiti and street art artists. A multimedia featuring catolog, postered construction walls, murals, and visual arts exhibit, it's a groundbreaking project!

In street art world, being queer isn't okay. The scene is dominated by misogynistic and homophobic heterosexual men. This exhibit, intended to counter the world of hegemonic street art, sheds light on the constant bullying of queer street artists and depicts the lineage of queers in street art and graffiti.

Commissioned by the Queer Cultural Center's Creating Queer Community funded through the National Endowment for the Arts, The San Francisco Arts Commission and the San Francisco Foundation. Special thanks to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for the catalog of this exhibit.
