Organized by guest curator and artist Nayland Blake, Tag: Proposals On Queer Play and the Ways Forward explores how the expanding influence of digital and online technologies, fandom subcultures, and artistic discourse has created new possibilities for queer identification, changing how personal roles and forms of expressions are defined in contemporary society. Based on the premise that the cultures of role play, sexual play, and digital play have all flourished beyond the boundaries of art structures, this exhibition provides a gathering place and platform for the exploration of queer play created by individuals and groups from the worlds of game design and theory, performance, kink, and activism. Tag: Proposals On Queer Play and the Ways Forward will be on view on view February 2 through August 12, 2018.

For the exhibition, Blake illuminates these new and evolving forms of representation and examines the implications these developments have had on art and social action through a curatorial approach that draws on their own preoccupation with themes of interracial desire, same-sex love, and racial and sexual bigotry.


Organized by Nayland Blake, Katherine Sachs (CW’69) and Keith L. Sachs (W’67) Guest Curator, with support from Laporte Associate Curator Kate Kraczon. ICA gratefully acknowledges support from the Katherine and Keith Sachs Guest Curator Program.
