Queer Santas: Holy Violence

September 9, 2014 to January 9, 2015

Fresh from the Fowler Museum at UCLA, you won't want to miss the Doug Adams Gallery exhibition, Queer Santas: Holy Violence by artist Alma Lopez.

The exhibit runs through January 9, 2015.

Also, be sure to come to the opening Reception with Alma Lopez at the 5th Annual Harness Lecture  in the PSR Chapel of the Great Commission on Tuesday, October 14, at 8pm.

Alma Lopez is a visual artist and currently, a visiting lecturer at UCLA. Over the last two decades, Lopez’s work has been exhibited in over one hundred national and international solo and group exhibitions. In 1999, UCLA’s La Gente Newsmagazine dubbed Alma Lopez the Digital Diva for her groundbreaking photo-based digital series Lupe and Sirena. That series, and most of Lopez’s visual work, raises questions about popular Mexican icons filtered through a radical Chicana feminist lesbian lens. For more information, visit www.almalopez.net 

 

In the Queer Santas, Holy Violence collection, Alma Lopez presents paintings and prints that highlight women and girls who were persecuted for deviating from societal norms. By presenting the saints and historical figures depicted in these works in contemporary form, Lopez links them with present day concerns, focusing on the troubling normalization of violence against women.
