Sunday, August 14th
12:00 noon – 6:00 PM
909 West Adams Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90007
On Sunday, August 14th, be transformed by history and frozen in time as a cherished member of a tableau vivant-style
GAY PHOTO SHOOT at ONE archives.
Calling all haggard bull daggers and baby dykes, saucy queens, bossy bisexuals, telepathic transgenders, ambidextrous allies, leathery leather daddies young and old, interested intersex people, soft butches, closet cases, as well as staff, board members, volunteers and friends of ONE Archives! Join us and strike a pose with an archival object!
Comb the collections of ONE and model a costume, animate an Act-Up protest placard, display a book or painting from the Archives on your body. Bear your teeth, your breasts, your behind or cover your entire head with an overturned archival storage box and remain anonymous! Invent a pseudonym for the day, a dynamic or deadpan persona. Impersonate or channel the spirit of your favorite LGBT mentor with your photogenic gestures and creativity! Practice your poker face, your camera face and be fabulous or discrete.
Above all, BE THERE ON SUNDAY AUGUST 14, 2011.
Light refreshments will be provided
and the shoot is guaranteed to be a hoot!
The final photo will appear as an limited edition full color posters on the inside book jacket of the much anticipated Cruising the Archives catalogue that ONE Archives is publishing for the forthcoming Pacific Standard Time exhibition in conjunction with the Getty Institute. This event is organized by artist and recent USC MFA graduate, Onya Hogan-Finlay.
