WAYS IN BEING GAY

Presented at:
Hallwalls

[Second biannual WAYS IN BEING GAY festival, featuring a performance by the late visual artist and writer David Wojnarowicz, who had first appeared at Hallwalls in 1983, and whose essay for a recent exhibition at Artists Space (WITNESSES: AGAINST OUR VANISHING) has sparked one of the earliest controversies of John Frohnmayer's stormy tenure as NEA Chairman. Brenda and Glennda, drag queen public-access producers from Manhattan, are invited to Buffalo to cover the festival and pay a memorable visit to Mayor Griffin at City Hall. —E.C.]

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
