The notorious Adonis Theater, legendary gay adult movie house closed under homophobic pressure from developers, now “reappears” creatively reimagined as a modern Brigadoon for one night only as artists from the LA queer community descend on Human Resources, also a former adult theater now turned experimental art gallery, to share their hot visions around themes of Gay Sex and Queer Liberation in context of the current state of assimilation, disappearing LGBTQ space and shrinking ghettos. It is a creative activist effort and sexy night of interactive queer entertainment and community which will transform Human Resources into a sexual amusement park of gay art, video and performance. Join us for a night at The Adonis.
Participating artists: Gregory Barnett, Ben Cuevas, Andrew Disorder, David Parke Epstein, Hank Henderson, Hunter, Jason Jenn, Andrea Lambert, David LeBarron, Ricky Luna, Ian MacKinnon, Martin Matamoros, Leopold Nunan, Robert Patrick, Steven Reigns, Jack Shamblin, Vyper SynVille, Evans Vestal Ward, Trevor Wayne, Travis Wood, Rich Yap and more.
Human Resources was founded by a team of creative individuals who seek to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. Human Resources is not-for-profit and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.
