While art has long been a part of the cultural experience at the LA PRIDE Festival, Cruising will infuse queer art and culture in an immersive festival environment.
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 experience, this exhibition 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.
