Don’t miss the group show IT’S MUCH LOUDER THAN BEFORE—organized by James Bartolacci and Stefano di Paola—now in its final week. Exploring “various communities and aesthetics of queer nightlife—from libertine sex parties to the glitz of discos to the queer nightclub as a historic space for organizing and political activity—the importance of these parties and locales in creating connection has been amplified by their absence in the pandemic.”*
A percentage of the sales from this exhibition will be donated to REACH LA, a youth-driven organization serving LGBTQ+ people of color and their communities to encourage creative expression, provide supportive safe spaces, and promote health and wellness since 1992.
See link below for details.
Through September 18.
2660 South La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles.
