HAVING A BALL
Jan. 20 – May 28, 2018
Michael Childers had amazing entrée into the world of Andy Warhol and the members of his famous studio, The Factory. The glamour and daring of that era comes roaring back to life through the imagery of Michael Childers: Having a Ball. In this exhibition, the depictions of Warhol himself–pensive and perhaps surprisingly vulnerable–are contrasted with Childers’ joyous imagery of gender-bending pioneers celebrating their individuality at a 1975 drag ball. These striking black-and-white images anticipate the current culture of transgender awareness and gender fluidity.
