DUETS: Kia LaBeija and Julie Tolentino in Conversation
- June 21 | 7pm
To celebrate the publication DUETS: Kia LaBeija & Julie Tolentino In Conversation, Kia LaBeija and Julie Tolentino will be in dialogue with Vivian Crockett, with readings from the book’s essays authored by Lia Gangitano and David Velasco.
For the DUETS publication, Kia LaBeija and Julie Tolentino come together for an intergenerational dialogue that illuminates their histories as artists and their relationships to HIV/AIDS spanning more than twenty years. From different perspectives, they discuss their shared practices as artists, performance makers, dancers, poets, and activists. With additional contributions by Lia Gangitano and David Velasco.
DUETS is a series of publications that pairs artists, activists, writers, and thinkers in dialogues about their creative practices and current social issues around HIV/AIDS.
DUETS: Kia LaBeija & Julie Tolentino In Conversation is available for purchase online at the Visual AIDS store, and will also be available at the event.
