Queer Art Dominates Los Angeles In February
Feb 09, 2012 by GayCities
Gay Angelinos are squeezing culture out of that concrete: Two art exhibits and a one-man performance art show proves this month has the most gay-friendly art L.A. has seen since Elizabeth Taylor’s shine was erected in the Abbey.
Originally curated in San Francisco by local street artist Jeremy Novy, A History of Queer Street Art gets the Hollywood treatment this month thanks to L.A.-based artist Homo Riot. The exhibition opens today and will run through February 29 at the Physical Goods gallery. Using stencils, stickers and installations, History recreates the street art experience but from a queer point of view.
As the gallery text details:
In street art world, being queer isn’t okay. The scene is dominated by misogynistic and homophobic heterosexual men. This exhibit, intended to counter the world of hegemonic street art, sheds light on the constant bullying of queer street artists and depicts the lineage of queers in street art and graffiti.
Artists showcased in the exhibit include OBEY’s Shepard Fairey (right), the video game-inspired Space Invaders and European art couple Adrian & Shane (above). “I hope this show will be seen as an important milestone in the queer artistic history of Los Angeles,” said Homo Riot.
