ART2102 presents the last in a series of collaborations with new generations of alternative spaces and projects in Los Angeles. ART2102 has been extending its status as a non-profit and beneficiary of grants to several of these smaller experimental spaces, while generating and increasing their exposure through ART2102's communication networks and support systems. More about the 2008 Program.

LAST WILDNESS OF 2008: 12/16
in collaboration with ART2102

Flawless Sabrina (aka Jack Doroshow) is a legendary queen-mother/oracular-shaman/artist who has been performing and organizing talent since 1959. She revolutionized the UNITED STATES with pop-up drag balls ("from the Mississippi to the Ozarks") in the 50's and 60's at a time when cross dressing was a felony in many states. In 1968, after enduring raids, spending nights (dressed) in jails, and being escorted to countless state borders, she was the subject of the documentary "The Queen," which screened at Cannes Festival and brought her world wide recognition. Counting among her community archetypes Monique, Dorian Corey, Crystal La Beija, Mario Montez, Rachael Harlow, and International Chrysis, Sabrina has been a fierce visionary inspiration to the queer community and art world. Today Sabrina lives, performs, and writes in New York City.

Wildness presents a new performance by FLAWLESS SABRINA in collaboration with ZACKARY DRUCKER, sculpture/installation by SHANNON EBNER, and late night acts by GIA ALLURE and LA SPIRITS.

Wildness is a club and performance series that happens every Tuesday at the Silver Platter. As a collective body we are brown queer trans creative people, working together with the Silver Platter to produce a night of music, dancing and live art. We've been organizing since February 2008, to offer a creative platform and dialog between our intersecting LBGT/POC/artist communities. Our event is free and self-sustaining. Our mission is to invent new ways visualizing, physically experiencing and talking about complex identity politics that surround our queer lived experience, through late night art-making and partying. Wildness would not be possible with out the profound support, collaboration, and labor of love from SP's owner Gonzalo Ramirez and crew: Kokie Corral, Nicol dela Rocha, and Javier Vargas.
