Opening Reception + Panel: OUT LOUD

Opening Reception + Panel: OUT LOUD

Presented by Utah Museum of Contemporary Art at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

Working with local artists and museum staff over the course of ten weeks, nine teens explored contemporary art-making processes and created original artworks that share their unique perspectives on sexual and gender identity, gender expression, and romantic orientation.

These youth view art-making as a meaningful method of communication as well as an opportunity to connect with other members of the queer community. They are motivated to address oppression as they experience it in their own lives, as well as support and defend the needs and experiences of others. While holding each other accountable for providing an inclusive, safe space for creative action, each artist embraced the chance to learn about concepts from performing gender to intersectionality and memory.

Out Loud encourages teens to be themselves and to share their creative voices out loud.

Join us to view and celebrate the artistic accomplishments of the Out Loud participants at a public reception on Friday, April 29, from 7-9 PM. A student panel, moderated by UMOCA Education Coordinator Elly Baldwin, will be held at 6:30 PM.
