Join us for the inaugural ICUQTS: International Chicago Underground Queer Transcendance Symposium. ICUQTS is an interdisciplinary festival celebrating creative cultural engagement with local and international queer communities through exhibition of visual & performance art, music, panel discussions, and workshops, around the theme of queer (LGBTQIA+) transcendence.
ICUQTS features artwork from over 50 visual and performance artists from across Chicago, the US, and the world, as well as Chicago-based vendors and community organizations.
ICUQTS 2018 is a part of EXPO Art Week 2018, and is a 2017 Propeller Fund Awardee.
ICUQTS is presented by TRQPITECA, a Chicago-based artist duo and production company creating an intersection between art, queer culture, and dance music, with the intention of fostering creative engagement with the diverse communities of which we are a part.
