Last September, we playfully announced that this year was 303’s Saturn return – a time to reflect, prioritise, realign. What an understatement that turned out to be.
We are very fortunate: governmental emergency aid is ensuring our short-term survival, and core funding means we can protect staff, teacher and artist wages. However, the rental and workshop losses we anticipate threaten our ability to hold onto our beloved studio – our creative home for the past 30 years. We are counting on your support to help us navigate the rough waters ahead, and thrive as a physical space where thinking can be embodied.
Queer Body Politic is an online contemplative space featuring video-performances by a small cross-section of queer-identified Montreal artists, as well as excerpts from interviews with five artists, and an essay.
The project is conceived by Studio 303’s 2019-20 Curator-in-residence, Aaron Pollard. Aaron is a mid-career artist with a long history with Studio 303 as part of the performance duo 2boys.tv.
