As part of the August First Friday, Gallery Q, The Triangle neighborhood, and ImageOut are partnering to present "Illuminate," a gallery event celebrating the LGBTQ community. "Illuminate" will feature artists Chen Wang, Citlali Fabián, and Katie Efstathiou, and puts a focus on projection and installation-based art.
Wang will display animations that explore sexuality and gender norms. In a collection of Fabián's own work, along with work from other Mexican photographers, Fabián creates an illustration of Mexican heritage, traditions, and culture. Efstathiou will showcase "Maybe Somewhere West," a photographic installation of landscapes, used to question how the gender binary stereotypes affect and relate to the naming of a place. The event will also include live music by Starz, and an after party will take place at Johnny's Irish Pub.
"Illuminate" will be showcased at "The Point" of Culver and Merchants Road (1392 Culver Road) on Friday, August 4, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, search for "Illuminate: A Gallery Event" on Facebook, or call Gallery Q at 244-8640.
