Join INSTALL:WeHo on June 2nd for it's 2nd annual queer, pop-up art village! Entrance is open and FREE to the public. Suggested Donation: $10.
This year, INSTALL:WeHo presents "Good Queer.” In a pop-up exhibition of installations and performances, artists examine what it means to be a good queer in today's society. Does it mean challenging traditional definitions of homosexuality and heterosexuality? Does it mean embracing the moveable feast of letters (lgbtqi) that has come to stand for those under the queer umbrella who are in need of more explicit protection? How does it affect our private and public lives and perceptions? How do the actions of performance and object-making intersect with the actions of challenging and embracing within this queer discourse? The manifestation of these questions and sentiments once again find a home in a caravan of U-haul trucks and a day-long celebration of queer art, installation and performance in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
