I am Unity: FORTUNE

Three people smiling and posed for the camera wearing festive yellow and red attire and makeup against a backdrop of print paraphernalia saying FORTUNE

Unity at the Initiative: a multi-site visual exhibition and at-home experience centering art by and for Queer and Trans Artists of Color. I am:_____ is a blog series to get to know our partners.

FORTUNE in the Year of the Pig 2019 was a Philadelphia-based publication project, assembled by and for queer Asian publics, and edited by Andrienne Palchick, Heidi Ratanavanich, and Connie Yu. Each of 13 monthly issues used letterpress and risograph printing, featured multiple contributors, and was released through community gathering of varied scale. Looking forward, FORTUNE is committed to hosting archival inquiries, print-based skill-shares, more public collaborations, and many meals with you. We think of printing and self-publishing as a practice of learning, gathering, remembering, and making multiple. As such, FORTUNE will always be a public project, tended to collectively.
