About this Event
1955 Ignatian Circle, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA 90045, USA#Laband Art Gallery
On view January 20 - March 23
The Laband is delighted to present Queerteñx, a two-person exhibition, guest curated by Erika Hirugami and featuring artists Salvador de la Torre and José Villalobos.
The exhibition Queerteñx is intimately tied to the México/United States border aesthetically, historically, geographically, symbolically, visually, and conceptually. In this show, the aesthetic achievements of José Villalobos and Salvador de la Torre converge to theoretically queer citizenship and problematize machismo from a queer/trans axis—nepantleando in diaspora—where queerness is a site of infinite possibility. Visually articulated throughout this exhibition is an aesthetic provocation upon machismo, heteropatriarchy, and cis-supremacy that challenges inherent social value through Queerteñx culture.
