Update on Two Years in Correspondence

Queering Yerevan has had a very busy summer, mostly organizing and launching our third annual summer happening -- the QY 2010 ART INTERVENTION "QUEERING TRANSLATION," parts of which you can see virtually by clicking here.

This was the third happening of its kind, the first one being "Coming To You To Not Be With You" (2008) and the second, "What Is To Take Place" (2009).

We are very behind with the "Two Years in Correspondence" book project and it looks like we'll have to push the publication date till next summer. This is not bad, by any means, in fact, the final book will be much richer in content and will encompass not just the two years of the collective's activities, but will include this year's projects as well. We also decided to include artistic works (such as shots from performances and videos, and photography) in addition to the letters, so the concept behind the book is expanding. Typical to QY, ideas are morphing into newer ones as we go through happenings and as those happenings shift our gaze to the present-future -- to where we are now and where we want to be.

By the way, the name of the collective has changed thanks to Melissa Boyajian from WOW (Women-Oriented Women) to QY and we are happily inviting you to browse through the blog and witness the transanimation as it has progressed.

Thank you for your patience and for your support!
