The exhibition highlights the story of OUT/LOOK, a groundbreaking national queer quarterly published in San Francisco from 1988 to 1992, via displays of historical materials as well as new work created by 38 culture-makers inspired by the journal. The show and its associated publication and website are designed to spark intergenerational conversations about the legacy of OUT/LOOKand its era.
