Queer Is Where The Heart Is is a an art exchange between Iceland and the US that explores the many nuances of queerness with a special interest in how queerness relates to place. As a transitory and ever-evolving identity and social group, roughly defined by what we are not, queers are no strangers to claiming place– making home where the heart is — often in the margins, with fluid definitions, in self-defined categories, relationships, and places. This project includes exhibitions in Reykjavik and Baltimore, an online archive, an exhibition zine, and a compilation music cd. The exhibition in Reykjavík, Iceland took place at Samtökin 78, Jan 21-Feb 29, 2012.
