A new multimedia exhibition focusing on OUT/LOOK, a national queer quarterly based in San Francisco that ran from 1988 to 1992. Embracing gender and racial diversity and bridging academic and community perspectives, the magazine had a passionate following and sparked vigorous debates. It addressed political and cultural topics, emphasizing graphic arts along with scholarly and literary writing.

Curated by E.G. Crichton, the exhibition features new work by an array of culture-makers, each of them asked to draw on one issue of OUT/LOOK for inspiration. By documenting the history and sparking fresh creative investigation, the exhibition will bring the legacy of the magazine to a new generation.
The opening will include remarks by the curator. In addition, many of the exhibition contributors will attend, as will founders and editors of OUT/LOOK. A new issue of OUT/LOOK published in association with the exhibition will be available for purchase. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, visit the exhibition website.
