“Queer Objectivity,” a curated exhibition by Kris Grey, is open at the Stamp Student Union Gallery at the University of Maryland at College Park through Dec. 6.

The exhibit features work from 16 artists who explore the body in relation to objects, the body as an object itself and objects as a channel for the body to a different realm. The artwork is a mixture of sculpture, photography, performance and new media.

The Stamp Gallery is on the first floor of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union-Center for Campus Life at the University of Maryland at College park. The gallery is free and open to the public Mondays through Thursdays from 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Fridays from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, visit thestamp.mud.edu/gallery.
