The Scene (Houston 1969-1981) by Houston based collaborative Nick Vaughan & Jake Margolin premieres at the Wedge Space at Houston Community College (HCC) Southeast Oct 10 – Nov 13 2017.
Based on source imagery found in collaboration with Houston photographers, archivists, and community members, The Scene provides a glimpse into Houston’s diverse and thriving drag scene in the years between Stonewall and the beginning of the AIDS crisis, and reflects on the city’s historic and underappreciated role as a destination and refuge for LGBTQ citizens in the Gulf Coast region.
After this premier the work will be split apart and shown simultaneously in several Houston LGBTQ bars.
There will be two artist talks and a screening of documentaries scheduled during the HCC show.
