Queer(ing) Pleasure illustrates the radical queer potential of pleasure, challenging the too-often limited, white, hetero-centric logic of the erotic. Ignited by Audre Lorde’s inquiry, forty years ago, into the erotic as power, the exhibition investigates the ways in which pleasure is an “unexpressed and unrecognized” feeling. Through performance, photography, embroidery, video, and sculpture, the artists trace new and existing networks between pleasure, erotics, and queerness.

Gallery hours:

  • Wednesdays through Sundays: 2pm to 7pm

DC Arts Center (DCAC) is located at 2438 18th Street NW.
