Join us March 3, 2017, for an Opening Reception at Strut to celebrate the work of Joseph Abbati.
The opening starts at 8 PM sharp and will go till 10 PM. Free drinks and light snacks will be provided. Plus drag queens. See you there!
This is the first solo exhibition by Joseph Abbati, entitled “LARGER THAN LIFE,” a tribute to San Francisco drag queens. The exhibit consists of 4' x 5' tapestries made from photographic portraits with video screening "DRAG SFO." The drag queens in this exhibit include Peaches Christ, Sister Roma, Juanita More, Honey Mahogany, Heklina, Grace Towers and Creme Fatale.
This exhibit pays tribute to drag queens who have been on the forefront of fighting for LGBT rights. In the '60s they began by fighting back at Stonewall to help start the gay liberation movement. In the '80s and '90s they became activists and caretakers for people with AIDS. Now in the 21st century, they continue to stand as forebearers of gender fluidity.
