Friday June 22 6-8pm: Artist Reception
“The act of archiving is an evolving process. It exists within and outside of bodies and spaces and objects. Queer archiving is an art that stretches, extends, and challenges the body and its various constructions. In regards to the black queer body, archiving can act as a mirror, a map, a space of origin, a way to ask difficult questions. In the creation of a “visual diary,” Clifford Prince King’s photographs are reflective of this process–his work acting as a way to challenge, explore, and negotiate concepts of black gay sexuality, masculinity, and community. ”
