Lesbian Matters is a participatory art project that explores the personal and material effects that are collected through our lives. These personal collections of postcards, trinkets, letters, photographs, and buttons serve as reminders of life’s queer moments. What are the objects that make up your life?
For an exhibition at Trestle Gallery as part of The BRIC Biennial, Brooklyn-based artist Phoenix Lindsey-Hall is collecting objects, stories, and personal artifacts that mark lesbian life. This will create a collective snapshot that reflects a contemporary lesbian objecthood.
This call for materials is inclusive and open to anyone especially those identifying as lesbian, butch, queer, non-gender binary, trans, or believes their voice should be represented in this collective examination of a contemporary lesbian life. In this way, we are preserving a living moment of lesbian history in real time.
