Super Impose repurposes the Lightbox Studio into a generator and launching point for projects and printed matter designed to expose the world as queer and unclear.By facilitating illegibility and introducing uncertainty to the nature of the social, emotional and physical geography of the city, a new Calgary is proposed to exist parallel, inside of and over top of everything taken for granted.
May G N is a Trans Albertan Artist that works with new media print technologies to produce work engaging with their personal navigation of territories that span the emotional, physical and societal. Through layering image, text and material, May G N provides scenarios where the decisions of the viewer are interrogated surrounding their relationship with queer identities and the territories they inhabit and change.
Lightbox Studio at Arts Commons is an experimental studio and exhibition space that promotes studio-based projects, running in 2-3 month intervals.
