Vernacular Glamour

View "Vernacular Glamour" at the Kathryn Schultz Gallery and online from Thursday, Jan. 6 through Saturday, Feb. 5. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 12-4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. This exhibition is curated by Juan Omar Rodriguez and features artwork by Juan Arango Palacios, Maria Yolanda Liebana, Perla Mabel, Chloé Luisa Piñero, Ginger Q, Rixy, Moises Salazar and Jhona Xaviera.

What is possible when glamour, grounded in quotidian experiences, is embraced, celebrated and engaged critically? This exhibition brings together a cross-section of contemporary Latinx artists working with the visual vocabularies of camp, popular culture, high fashion plus baroque painting and architecture through vernacular idioms. Engaging the materials and forms of ball culture, advertising media, spiritual practices and street art, the ten artists in "Vernacular Glamour" mobilize the artifice and exuberance of glamour to address the complexities of everyday life.

The artworks brought into conversation here reflect and reimagine what is familiar to queer, working class and racialize peoples and often undervalued by majoritarian arbiters of taste. "Vernacular Glamour" focuses on figurative work to signal the ways in which the representation of certain bodies and experiences remains novel, controversial even. Through photography, painting, textiles, drawing and video, the works in this exhibition unapologetically engage the experiences and desires of people who are Black and brown, curvy, fat, feminine, non-binary and queer.
