HandiWERK – A Curated Queer Collaboration

HandiWERK! Is the first exhibition of its kind in NL history! Exceptional craftspeople have been paired with local drag superstars to celebrate the resourcefulness, resilience, and flamboyance that underpins both art forms. Drag performers Eda Kumquat, Irma Gerd, and Madame Daddy will bring to life the exquisite fashion, accessories, props, and staging expertly crafted by Jay Butler, Tucker Ellis, Cara Kansala, Jason Ross-Sellars, James Stenson, and Jason Wells. Tinkling porcelain nails and earrings glitter onto fabulously reinvented furniture; contemporary couture meets the evolution of great great-grandma’s rug hooking patterns migrating from the floor to become fabulous sequined wall hangings. Vision, reinvention, and a DIY attitude have always been central to the creativity of craftspeople and drag performers. Come revel in the brilliant energy at the crossroads of these two art forms!
