How’s your summer going? Have you been swimming? Camping (if so how did you score a site!!)? Day-tripping with iced coffees?
Whatever you do to enjoy yourself in addition to playing art lotto, we hope it’s giving you energy and zest. You may have already seen that you didn’t win last round, unless you were Margaret Flood (WAY 2 GO MARGARET!!**!**!*~~~). But don’t let it get you down. There’s more art to go around. 🎡 🍀 🧧

ABOUT THE ARTIST + CAUSE:
Jess MacCormack’s practice engages with the intersection of institutional violence and the socio-political reality of personal trauma. Working in various mediums, from installation and video to community art, their art explores queer politics, mental illness, embodiment and criminalization.
Their digital work has been shared through various online platforms, such as VICE Creator’s project, PAPER Mag, Art F City and even the White House Tumblr. Their animations have been screened internationally at festivals such as Ottawa International Animation Festival, MIX-26 the New York Queer Experimental Film Festival, Transcreen Amsterdam Transgender Film Festival, LA Film Fest at UCLA, Inside Out, Imaginative Film Festival and International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA).
