Queer/ Art/ Mentorship Announces 2013-2014 Fellows
By Jesse Steinbach
Queer/Art/Mentorship, the art program that creates and supports mentorship between emerging and established queer artists in New York City, has announced its 2013-2014 Fellowship winners.
The Fellows were selected after a rigorous two-month application and a review process amongst over 100 applicants in each field. From there, 11 artists were chosen, spanning five artistic disciplines: performance, literary, film, visual arts, and curatorial.
Congratulations to the 2013-2014 Fellows:
Ella Boureau in Performance
Xeňa Stanislavovna Semjonová in Performance
Colin Self and Lain Kay in Performance
Nicole Goodwin and Peter Knegt in Literary
Seyi Adebanjo and Natalia Leite</strong>
Troy Michie and Bridget de Girsigny in Visual Arts

Founded in 2011 by filmmaker Ira Sachs (who just finished up his latest movie Love is Strange) and Pilobolus Co-Executive Director Lily Binns, Queer/Art/Mentorship aims to start conversations about what it means to generate and curate queer work in NYC and America.
In previous years, Fellows had their work exhibited at venues such as MoMa, MoMa PS1, Monya Rowe Gallery, and Brooklyn Rail. Let's wish the new Fellows a successful year!
