Quoting Ourselves comprises a queer archive and community space in which artists critically engage with their own histories and mythologies in order to deconstruct "queer history" and attempt to create a new future whereby queer histories are created by queers themselves. Featuring the works of Indira Allegra, Sam Berliner, Allan D Avila-Espena, Rob Fatal, Meehaun Glasper-Wade, Jamil Hellu, Nia King, Bo Luengsuraswat, Jex Nguyen, and Loren Schmidt, Quoting Orselves presents self portraiture, subjective film essays, poetry, interactive video games, radical zines, and diary photography that work to fill the holes created by the kyriarchal process of history production, focusing on the notions of visibility and invisibility. The archive also presents a greatly-anticipated reading and lecture by writer and art activist Nia King, author of "Queer and Trans Artists of Color: Stories of Some of Our Lives" (2014). Quoting Ourselves: A Queer Archive invites you to take space, explore, and imagine what is possible when we quote ourselves.
