NICK VAUGHAN & JAKE MARGOLIN: POLITICAL GESTURES

Thursday, May 3, 7:30-9:30PM

Member preview reception at 7PM

Free admission


Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin present their newest multi-channel video installation, featuring overtly political drag performances created in collaboration with drag queens from Oklahoma (Gizele Monae, Josie Lee Turrelle, Mercy Monroe and Anita Richards) and artist/filmmaker Andrew Schneider. Celebrating the historical role of drag in the struggle for LGBTQ+ progress, Political Gestures incorporates speeches from the 1979 March on Washington For Gay and Lesbian Rights, radically political queer music, and interviews with contemporary members of Oklahoma’s LGBTQ+ community. Political Gestures was commissioned by Aurora Picture Show, and funded in part by the Mid-America Arts Alliance.

Political Gestures contains strong language and addressing of serious issues facing the LGBTQ+ community. 

The installation will be on view daily, May 4-10, 12-2pm (except closed Sunday, May 6), with the artists present, for those who would like to revisit and spend more time with the work.
