The Gutter Art of Stephen Varble:
Genderqueer Performance Art of the 1970s,
Photographs by Greg Day

In costumes made from street trash, food waste, and stolen objects, Stephen Varble (American,1946–1984) took to the streets of 1970s New York City to perform his “Gutter Art”. With disruption as his aim, he led uninvited costumed tours through the galleries of SoHo, occupied Fifth Avenue gutters, and burst into banks and boutiques in his gender-confounding ensembles.

DIRTY LOOKS
presents
City of Lost Souls
(With Weirdo Night)

Like Hedwig in reverse, this 1983 trans punk musical is the instant cult classic you’ve never seen! Blurring the lines between farce and documentary, City follows the wily performances of trans punk legend Jayne County (in her only starring role) and Angie Stardust, who runs a boarding house and the ground-floor restaurant, Burger Queen, where her lodgers earn their keep: Tron Von Hollywood, Tara O’Hara, Joaquín la Habana, Judith Flex and Gary.

TOM  OF  FINLAND  FOUNDATION
presents

RICK CASTRO
Fetish King: Seminal Photographs
1986 – 2019

The artist’s sex positive imagery is darkly erotic, elegant, and at times, sinister. A powerful and imaginative figure that emerged in the Los Angeles underground during the late ‘80s, Rick Castro has been dubbed “the fetish king” by all that know him. His photographs are characterized by potent and visceral tableaux, tinged with sadomasochism, leather and sexual pleasure.

RUBÉN ESPARZA
Piss + Blood & Spunk: Seminal Works,
1993-2019

Rubén Esparza combines the skills of a multi-media artist and the insight of a gifted curator to synergize intensely cross-referential artworks. Queer AIDS tropes, phallocentrism, and bodily fluids become markers of LGBTQ+ culture from the early ’90s to the contemporary Trumpian zeitgeist.
