Wrightwood 659 will screen five short doc-films and videos that explore themes of queer identity, visibility and fear, inclusivity and exclusivity, and the importance of third places – social settings outside of work or home – in the formation and presentation of identity.
The films include London-based artist Kareem Reid’s “Day Dream”, in which Reid navigates social isolation and vulnerability in relation to queerness, Tom Kneller’s “Blue Like You”, a documentary-style film about anti-LGBT bias in the skateboarding community, a video from the i-D documentary series “Out of This World”, which explores queer culture in Johannesburg, and parts of a DJ set and artist talk by Juliana Huxtable.
Following the films will be an open discussion surrounding identity and the way we navigate our social spaces.
Doors open at 5:30 PM. This event is organized by Hannah Radeke, Exhibitions Intern.
