The City of West Hollywood hosted INSTALL:WeHo, the city’s first annual queer art pop-up village on Sunday, September 16, 2012 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the El Tovar parking lot and ONE Archives Gallery & Museum, 626 N. Robertson Boulevard. INSTALL:Weho is an interactive exhibition showcasing the curated and juried work of LBGTQ-minded artists in the Greater Los Angeles community.
With the support of the City of West Hollywood, ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Pasadena Arts Council and Frontiers Magazine LA, this pop-up installation served as a forum to bring both established and emerging LGBTQ artists and contributors together. In the raw, spontaneous spirit of the underground art scene and with the refined organization of a fine art biennial, INSTALL:WeHo appeared overnight in a caravan of U-Haul trucks, each dedicated to, and curated by an individual, organization, gallery or performance troupe, but together forming a pop-up art “city.” In doing so, INSTALL:WeHo has the opportunity to share the story, struggle and spirit of the LGBTQ community through a diverse array of mediums and forms. INSTALL: WeHo featured numerous works by contemporary LGBTQ artists including Alex Blas, Amy Von Harrington, Ben Cuevas, Ben Phen, Derek Ringold, David O'Brien, Dorothy Hoover, Maya Bookbinder & Constance Hockaday, Onya Hogan-Finlay & Kim Kelly, Shelia Malone & Gwynn Shanks, Thinh Nguyen, and Patrisse Cullors; a selection of musical, spoken-word, comedic and movement performances organized by Akbar’s APT3F; a screening truck with videos by LGBTQ artists curated by ONE Archives’ David Evans Frantz; and much more!
