A solo exhibition of work by Callie Lugosi. Join us for the opening reception of “Majesties” on Friday, July 12 from 7-10pm.
“… They turn their camera to Winnipeg’s drag royalty in Majesties: the harvest of an extraordinarily performative, deeply personal, conceptual cornucopia of homegrown genderfuckery.
In the manner of a Renaissance court painter, Lugosi’s lens enshrines each noble as they themselves would wish to be immortalized.
This gaudy catalogue in gilded frames captures the imperturbable inner radiance of the local community’s intersectionally outspoken, iconizing those who swerve away from puritanical binary definition and lead the reformation of gender’s presentational architecture.”
