Primary sources are those created at the moment, the relics and artifacts of a time period, imbued with the physical and psychic energy of their surroundings.
Our Primary Sources exhibit documents and shares the objects (primary sources) that are integral to acts of performance art. These photographs, videos, props, costumes, notes, words, poems, lyrics, and drawings are the objects drenched in the experience and exploration of the performance artist.
These primary sources can serve to elucidate, confound, and complicate the radically vast and polemic notions of culture: in specific what it is to be Queer and Latin@. It seeks to document this moment in art history; specifically, the work of artists from historically marginalized communities. This exhibit looks at the developing notions of what Latin@ and Queer are and may become; celebrating our voices and our expressions as legitimate and powerful.
