Dorian Wood

Sunday 19 hs
Dorian Wood is a Los Angeles-based artist who seeks to glorify both the sanctity and irreverence of intimacy. Through the use of their corpulent body and booming voice, Wood revels in challenging the artist-audience separation, using subject matter informed by their own position in society as a non-binary person of color and an autodidact without a formal college education nor a strong alliance to any particular community. Their work has been showcased in concert halls and performance spaces around the world, including at such institutions as The Broad (Los Angeles), LACMA (Los Angeles), The Stone (NYC), MASS Gallery (Austin), Kulturhuset (Stockholm), and Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin). As a musician, they have released over a dozen recordings. Their most recent album, XALÁ, marks the first time that Wood has recorded a full-length work in their mother tongue of Spanish.

Lizette Lizette

Saturday 23 hs
När albumet ’NON’ kom den 8:e februari ramlade hyllning efter hyllning in. Fredrik Strage jämförde Lizette med Madonna i TV4 Nyhetsmorgon, P3 plockade för fjärde gången i rad upp en av singlarna, Nöjesguiden kom med fina recessioner, ett albumspår hamnade på PSL topp 20-listan, QX Sverige och England hyllade den ickebinär artisten och snabbt började både radio, bloggar, tidningar och listor världen över dela albumet. Den tredje och sista videon till låten ’Junk’ släpps den 13:e mars och har premiär på Billboard Pride tillsammans med en lång intervju.
Trots att Lizette alltid varit 100% indie har hen sedan debutskivan haft en stadigt växande fanbase både i Sverige, Tyskland och USA där bl.a. klubblegenden Susanne Bartsch ingår. Albumet ’NON’ har ett klubbigare och svalare sound än debutskivan ’Queerbody’, men de sexiga, tunga basgångarna är något som Lizette behållit.

Mario Fjell

Sunday 16 hs
Mario Fjell, they/she, works as an interdisciplinary artist and musician. They are engaging in participatory and performative socially engaged art practices.
At the Queer Art Fest they will share some of their texts and sounds. The performance and ”protest songs” includes subversive wishes for a non-violent and non-dominant society by reveling and discussing abusive relations, transphobia and the harmful heteronormativity. There is a longing for silence and compassion, but as long as that’s not possible, the stories have to be specific and spoken out load. Sugar Mamas, Leather Daddies, Perverts, Tranny Boys, Soft Butches amongst many others are a great inspiration while creating a better world.
