Strange Bedfellows is a visual art exhibition exploring collaborative practice in queer art. Featuring the work of over twenty contemporary queer artists alongside ephemera loaned from the San Francisco GLBT Historical Society Archive, the show presents diverse strategies for collaboration and considers multiple authorship as a radical concept.

Strange Bedfellows is a nationally traveling exhibition with accompanying catalogue, and is a fiscally sponsored project of the Queer Cultural Center. The exhibition will debut in San Francisco at Root Division in June 2013 as part of the National Queer Arts Festival, and then travel to the Samek Art Gallery at Bucknell University in Lewisburg Pennsylvania in Fall of 2013. It will next be presented in Chicago for the College Art Association Conference in February of 2014 as the sponsored exhibition of the Queer Caucus for the Arts. Additional funders for the project include Endeavor Foundation for the Arts & Rainbow Grocery.
