I am not alone in this way a salon*

May 27, 2012 3:30-5:30pm

Featuring: Ariel “Speedwagon” Federow Aldrin Valdez Camilo Godoy Charles Long Ella Boureau Riley MacLeod Ryan Green Ted Kerr

The Radiator Gallery is pleased to present ‘I am not alone in this way’, a salon that invites you to consider how our most intimate ways of being—striving and surviving, often in a hostile world—can be viewed as responsible for positive social change.

The salon is in conjunction with the exhibition Don’t Worry What Happens Happens Mostly Without You currently on view at the Radiator Gallery. This exhibition curated by Kris Nuzzi explores the personal identities of artists Jeanie Choi, Camilo Godoy, Ted Kerr, James Richards, Aldrin Valdez and Sam Vernon, as they navigate through a world shaped by experiences of marginalization, silencing and difference. Whether speaking from their own life, recreating a historical memory or representing an underrepresented community, their work explores poetic and subtle ways to communicate issues of immigration, race, queerness and desire. Together they reveal the connections and differences between these loaded social issues and invite the viewer to share in their intimate experiences.

Preceding the salon: Letters to CeCe 1pm – 3:30pm

Join us as we write support letters to CeCe MacDonald as she awaits sentencing. We will also be learning how having a pen pal in prison can help make a difference. Letters to CeCe is supported by Pretty Queer (prettyqueer.com), Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, and Visual AIDS. see event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/233239623452348/
