This CCP Spring Lecture Series event features a presentation by Sybil Venegas:
Identity, Community, Sexuality: The Intersectional Aesthetics of Laura Aguilar
Los Angeles Photographer Laura Aguilar (1959-2018) is internationally renowned for her work in nature, specifically self portrait nudes in which her body echoes the landscape. However, prior to these now iconic self portraits, Aguilar documented diverse identities throughout the Los Angeles area in loving homage to the communities that nurtured her identity as a large, brown, Chicana lesbian photographer. The lecture, Identity, Community, Sexuality: The Intersectional Aesthetics of Laura Aguilar will focus on the early influences that formed Aguilar as an emerging artist and how they informed her later work.
