New Queer Perspectives on the Western Edge

As queer artists, we navigate a city that may have been built on illusion but is being held together by individualized histories… Piece by piece we work to ensure that each of our voices is heard, confident that our contributions must strengthen the foundation of a future historical dialogue as it will pertain to queer artists living and working in Los Angeles right now. -Darin Klein

Special note from Christopher Russel:

I’m presenting a very special project in this show. I’m working with a former student, Halle Tate, who I met during my year of teaching in Ohio. We wrote an exquisite corpse style text inspired by Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance. Gaga sings “you and me could write a bad romance,” which I took as a challenge emanating from speakers practically everywhere I went.

I contacted Halle who is the biggest Gaga fan I know, and we worked on this written piece which will be available as a limited edition, hand made, paperback book. We also made independent visual responses to the collaborative text, which will also be on display. Hope to see you there!

THE LOUVRE
“I know my little ‘dirty drawings’ are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if — I would like to say ‘when,’ but I better say ‘if’ — our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” (1991)
