Let Your Body In

Reception: April 21, 2012, 5-8pm

ONE Archives Gallery & Museum

626 North Robertson Boulevard
West Hollywood, CA 90069

Please join us for the opening reception of Let Your Body In, an exhibition of work by contemporary queer artists alongside artworks and objects from the collections at ONE Archives. Participating artists include EMR (Math Bass & Dylan Mira), Maya Bookbinder, Laurel Frank, Aimee Goguen, Kim Kelly, and Lee Relvas. Additional pieces from the archives include works by Roger Campbell, Harold L. Dittmer, G.N., Olaf Odegaard, Tomata du Plenty, John Quitman, and James Snodgrass. The exhibition explores creative approaches to activating the body and playful ways of engaging with queer histories and culture. As a follow-up to Cruising the Archive, this exhibition looks at artworks outside a strictly historical context, allowing for new interpretations for queerness to emerge between the contemporary and archival.

More information on the exhibition can be found here. Make sure to RSVP on Facebook here!
