Queer Van Kult is a liturgy of performance, installation, and music with a focus on queer artistry and multimedia work. Imagined as a surreal funhouse of queer taste, Queer Van Kult was created as a response to a tapering of dedicated platforms for avant-garde performance and art on Staten Island. Queer Van Kult: Revelation transforms Newhouse Gallery into a fully immersive dreamscape that subverts the societal narrative in which to be queer is to be “othered.”

The events presented and produced by the collective encourage an atmosphere of community, unbounded creativity, and celebration—all while providing a home for the cultivation of experimental works by local and emerging artists beyond. QVK is founded and curated by Rachel Fox, Nicie Mok, Jenno Snyder, and Zoë Tirado

Revelation is made possible through generous support from the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
