Cruising, a reference to queer meeting spaces, brings together some of Los Angeles’ most iconic, emerging, and historical LGBTQ artists. The program presents a multi-generational perspective that speaks to the diversity of what it means to be queer in 2016 and seeks to honor those who have paved the way for LGBTQ visibility in contemporary culture. With the goal of creating an inclusive, inspiring, and accessible exhibition, Cruising is both a nostalgic reminder of yesterday's survival tactics and a call to continue constructing profound queer ecosystems in public space and within the art world. Artists include: Tom of Finland, Zackary Drucker, Seth Bogart and Peggy Noland, JD Samson and Drew Denny, Liss LaFleur, Van Jazmin, Millie Brown, and Onch Movement.
