Queer Horror is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers, programmed and hosted by Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi.

Follow Carla Rossi, an immortal trickster and your unofficial tour guide through "Jeffrey Gibson: Like a Hammer" at the Seattle Art Museum. Gibson’s contemporary art combines powwow, pop culture, and punching bags to explore what modernity means within Indigenous cultures. Carla Rossi combines drag, clowning, and entitlement to address complacency, and the confusion of "mixed" identities. See through Carla’s eyes when you visit “Like a Hammer.”

ARTIST TALKS feature artists from a range of disciplines in the galleries for lively conversations about works of art on view at the Museum and how they relate to their own practices. Anthony Hudson (Grand Ronde) is a multidisciplinary artist, performer, and filmmaker perhaps best known as Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi.
