Self Evident Truths is an artistic collaboration that aims to showcase and highlight member of the LGBTQ community through a series of portraits. They are presenting their very first big exhibition at The Hole Gallery on May 29. The total 1675 portraits taken since the project’s inception in 2010 will be unveiled all at once within this exhibition along with musical performances and $10 prints for sale. Proceeds will be going to the project.
Initially created by New York-based artist iO Tillett Wright, Self Evident Truths features black and white, natural photographs that portray unbiased humanistic views of queer people. According to the group, “One of the core ideas behind Self Evident Truths, is that people don’t fit into over-simplified boxes. EVERYONE falls somewhere on a nuanced spectrum of human sexuality.”
Venux X will be spinning throughout the night, with musical performances by Bianca Casady of CocoRosie, Caveman and JD Samson & MEN. The event will be hosted by Terrence Koh, Eve Ensler, Slava Mogutin, Lauren Flax, and James Lecesne of The Trevor Project.
