2nd Annual Queer Pile-up!
Plus... 'zine release party for
21st Century Queer Artists Identify Themselves #2 & #3
Collective Show Los Angeles 2011 Satellite Event
Another smashing success, the 2nd Annual Queer Pile-up! proved beyond doubt that local queer artists working in all mediums are an industrious, thoughtful and motivated bunch. With over 200 guests coming through the doors during the evening and 40 artist participants, the outcome was truly inspired and inspiring. Paintings, drawings, photos, book arts, sculpture, community outreach, videos, wearables, ‘zines and performance shared a nurturing and welcoming space. The result was surprisingly cohesive given the premise of the show: a temporarily repurposed storefront studio cleared out for one evening, filled with art on a drop-in basis, and cleared out again at the end of the night. Big thanks to Amy Adler for once again loaning us her studio!
To round it all out, two new issues of Darin Klein and Suzanne Wright’s ‘zine, 21st Century Queer Artists Identify Themselves, were displayed, celebrated, flipped through and enjoyed.
