WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives presents a retrospective exhibition of work by Los Angeles-based queer Chicano artist Joey Terrill covering five decades of the artist's work including paintings, drawings and artist publications.
"Joey Terrill" runs from May 18 to Aug. 25 at the ONE Archives Gallery & Museum, 626 N. Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069. The opening reception is from 5-8 pm Saturday, May 18.
Rooted in a commitment to social justice issues, Terrill's work contests categories of Chicano and queer art and identity, consistently blurring the line between art, life, archive and activism. The works assembled in this exhibition point to multiple concerns in the artist's work such as raising queer and Chicana/o consciousness, complicating forms of representation and identity, and exploring personal histories.
Most recently, Terrill's work was included in ASCO: Elite of the Obscure, A Retrospective, 1972-1987 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as a part of the Pacific Standard Time initiative. This retrospective of Terrill's work underscores ONE's commitment to exploring histories of queer art in Los Angeles.
