Steven’s photograph, The Advantages of Modern Marriage, was chosen and is currently being exhibited as a part of ONE Gay and Lesbian Archive’s current three part exhibition Cruising the Archive: Queer Art and Culture in Los Angeles, 1945-1980.
The first part of the exhibition, titled WINK WINK, which features Steven’s print, is scheduled to show from now until April 1, 2012 at the ONE Archives Gallery and Museum. The show presents artworks that convey a particular emphasis on social scenes, queer humor, playfulness, and abstraction. Artists in Wink Wink include: Steven Arnold, Don Bachardy, Mitch Berman, B. Bow, Sidney Bronstein, Claire Falkenstein, Anthony Friedkin, Sister Corita Kent, Robert Legorreta (Cyclona), McAlister, Kate Millett, Robert Opel, Phranc, John Quitman, Don Sorenson, Anne Stockwell, and Patssi Valdez, and others.
Again, the exhibition can be viewed until April 1, 2012 at:ONE Archive Gallery and Museum, 626 North Robertson Boulevard, West Hollywood, California
Cruising the Archive is presented in conjunction with the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time initiative. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.
If you happen to be in LA, stop by the ONE Archive Gallery in West Hollywood, and show your support for this very influential, often overlooked, piece of art history.
