Opening: Proud Aliens & QUEER

On 30 July, the new group exhibition Proud Aliens will open its doors to visitors in two time slots.
Parallel to that, along the canal of the Oranje-Vrijstaatkade, we will have the public installation QUEER by United Painting to stimulate conversation about queerness in the public realm.
Join us to celebrate these colourful new works!

Proud Aliens

The LGBTQ+ project group of Framer Framed’s Open Atelier have created a utopian future where difference and diversity are recognised as beautiful and celebrated. The exhibition Proud Aliens coincides with Amsterdam Pride and was made in collaboration with i-psy Arts, Queer Currents and Framer Framed.
