- Gabriel Martinez
- Weitzman School of Design (PennDesign)
- Independent Creative Production Grant
Gabriel Martinez will work towards the full expansion of a project entitled “Queer Eclipse,” which explores the cultural, political and sexual climate of a particular moment in queer history- the summer of 1981. The Independent Creative Production Grant will enable the artist to experiment in the darkroom: affording the freedom to play, invent, fail, learn and to react instinctively. All this in the earnest search for what has not yet been revealed. Works from the “Queer Eclipse” series will be presented in a solo exhibition “Bound to the Past” at Marginal Utility Gallery in September/October 2019.
