Queertopia, curated by Gemma Rolls-Bentley for Daata Editions

Launching online on Daata Editions and exhibited at

Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco April 26-29, 2018 https://www.ifsowhat.com

Daata Editions is announcing a new online project Queertopia, curated by Gemma Rolls-Bentley, Artsy Private Sales Lead and Gay Times Magazine Columnist and Curator, to be launched at a screening exhibition at If So, What?, a new art fair celebrating art, design, music, and innovation in San Francisco April 26-29, 2018.
