The Exhibit will be taking place You will hear from the artist herself and a special guest. Evie will speak about her yearlong experience shooting this work and the “unusual collaboration between photographer and subject.” Describing this time, she states, “I went into the basement [to shoot] with curiosity, an interest in how drag queens use dressing up to explore different parts of themselves. I didn’t think I had much in common with someone who dressed as a drag queen, but I emerged wishing I had more in common—more guts to explore a different facet of myself, to be courageous and outrageous, to write my own life story rather than follow a prescribed path that I feel I should walk. My time with the Ladies has prompted me to ask myself: how can I achieve that degree of freedom in my own life?”
