Cruising the Archive: Queer Art and Culture in Los Angeles, 1945-1980 is a three-part exhibition of artwork and archival materials culled from the collections at ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives.
Organized by David Frantz and Mia Locks, Cruising the Archive: Queer Art and Culture in Los Angeles explores the relationship between artistic practices and LGBTQ histories through artworks, objects, and archival documents culled from the collections at ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives. By presenting works of art alongside archival materials from the social and historical context of their production, the exhibition explores the divergent, ambiguous, and sometimes humorous ways in which queer artists and activists in Los Angeles have contributed to the aesthetic and political field of cultural production. Cruising the Archive presents artworks by both established and unknown artists and is the most comprehensive showing of ONE Archives’ art collection to date.
