About this Event
Focusing specifically on the LGBTQ+ community, artist Lorenzo Triburgo aims to create a platform in which these people can speak their truth and have their voices and stories heard.
In his series, Policing Gender, Lorenzo became long-term pen pals with 32 prison inmates who identify as LGBTQ+ . He never questioned why they were in prison, but instead simply shared personal and emotional memories, such as their coming out stories, their fears, their triumphs and their goals for the future. Lorenzo visually represented these conversations through portrait and aerial photography, on view now at the CVA in Gravity of Perception.
Join us on Wednesday, February 20th at 6 pm to learn more about Lorenzo's work and practice. In addition to discussion time with the artist, there will be a workshop led by Lorenzo where participants will have the opportunity to engage in their own social justice activism by writing letters to LGBTQ+ inmates.
