A composite photograph of one of the largest gathering of drag artists ever assembled has been added to “A Brief History of Drag,” an exhibit on display at at the West Hollywood Library, located at 625 North San Vicente Blvd.
“It was one of the best experiences I’ve had in the last 25 years of doing photography – the sense of community was inspiring,” Young said.
The exhibit is an unprecedented photographic chronicle of the Los Angeles and West Hollywood drag scenes from the late 1800s through the present and also features other works by Young. The show runs through June 27 and may be viewed during regular library hours (Monday-Thursday 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.).
A collaboration between the city of West Hollywood, Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Advocate and Gochis galleries, and the Center for the Art of Performance, “A Brief History of Drag” is curated by Los Angles LGBT Center program manager Katie Poltz with art direction by David John Attyah, design by Cat Kostreba and research assistance from Jessica-Jean Fowler.
“A Brief History of Drag” will remain on view during the City of West Hollywood’s annual One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival. For information, visit www.weho.org/residents/drag-angeles-one-city-one-pride.
