Slide show: Passing – Fashioning Drag
The Lexington Art League‘s current exhibit, Passing: Fashioning Drag, is the latest manifestation of documentarians Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova’s three-year (thus far) project documenting drag culture in Lexington, Ky. Previously they have exhibited and lectured on their work in the United States and Europe. Future plans include a book and monologue play modeled after The Laramie Project.
This weekend, Passing comes to life on the stage of Buster’s Billiards and Backroom with a show featuring many of the performers pictured on the Loudon House’s walls and costumes by Patryq Howell, whose work is also featured in the exhibit. Click play, above, to see some of Gohde and Todorova’s images and hear them and Howell talk about the project.
