Fictive Personae update: video panel discussion at the Esopus Space (NYC)

Posted in Other Photographers by Sheila Newbery on July 8, 2010

In conjunction with the exhibit of Clayton Patterson’s Fictive Personae, which I noted briefly in an earlier post, the Esopus Space recently hosted a panel discussion about the Village drag culture of the 80s. You can watch an excerpt of that discussion here:

If you haven’t seen the show, there’s still have time: it’s been extended through August 5.  The portraits memorialize a performance art movement that exploded entirely outside the precincts of art professionalism  and the big bucks of corporate sponsorship/recognition.
