Polari was a secret language that evolved in the queer community in 19th-century London. Like all languages, it offered protection from outsiders, but also an identity, and the world-shaping power that comes with any vocabulary. This exhibition—the visual art part of the 'Mo-Wave Festival that just ended—is a continuation of the project to create a distinctly queer language. This one is visual. It is a lot about bodies and intimacy; it is a little bit about American flag Speedos and bare/bear butts. The people making it are super-sharp, talented artists like Steven Miller, Kelly O, Anthony Sonnenberg, Davida Ingram, Joey Veltkamp, and over a dozen more.
