East End Live Art: Politiqueer
Kitty Loco is going to have a hard time of it at POLITIQUEER. A creation of absurdist filmmaker Stephanie Saint Sanchez, the character stars in Kitty Loco in Good Queer/Bad Queer. Kitty will have to maneuver through the explosive minefield of queer political correctness. That’s no easy task, especially since Sanchez has no mercy on Kitty; she throws ever more complicated and confusing rules of gay, uh, sorry, queer correctness in the mix.
Several other artists will be presenting work in a variety of mediums. Among those performing is interdisciplinary artist Jonatan Lopez. His piece, Paletero, includes an exploration of freedom and manhood through edible sculptures (which will be auctioned off during the show). Voices Breaking Boundaries Assistant Director Joshua Turner says that while some of the artists will obviously address the issue of queer politics, others will simply present art from a GLBT perspective. They all know what the goal of the show is, but as to how they address that, they’ve been given free rein, he says. 6 p.m. Houston Institute for Culture, 708 Telephone Road. For information, call 713‑524‑7821 or visit www.vbbarts.org. Free.
Sun., Dec. 11, 6:30 p.m., 2011
