"The Gutter Art of Stephen Varble: Genderqueer Performance in the 1970s," photographs by Greg Day Recommended Free All Ages

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through May 24 2020
Stephen Varble performed in the streets of New York City in the 1970s in his costumes made from street trash, food waste, and stolen objects. Questioning gender and also going by his persona, Marie Debris, Varble was ahead of his time in the 1970s art world. The LA-based photographer, Greg Day, photographed Varble's public performances and events as they built an artistic friendship. This exhibition looks at a collection of hundreds of photographs taken by Day. Opening reception is Saturday 4/25, 6-9pm.
