“Girl, It Was Camp”
Angel City Brewery in partnership with Art Share L.A.
Curated by Dakota Noot
Reception: Thursday, June 6, 6-9 pm
Show runs from May 31 – June 30, 2019
“Girl, It Was Camp” explores the notion of camp through a selection of young, queer artists. Each artist embraces and challenges traditional camp aesthetics through a variety of mediums including collage, painting, photography, and zines. The show pays homage to LGBT history while expanding its connection. “Girl, It Was Camp” navigates identity through social media and the internet.
The show’s title originates from drag queen Mimi Imfurst’s defense of her outfit to Shangela on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Like the artists in the show, Mimi uses the color, comedy, and craft of camp to not only justify her outfit, but differentiate herself from other queens. Camp still remains a powerful device for artists.
Participating artists include:
