9. ART: “Two Johns and a Whore”
Two boundary-pushing gay artists headline this group show at Coagula Curatorial in Los Angeles’s Chinatown. Performance artist John Fleck (pictured), one of the “NEA Four” whose work was targeted in the 1990s by right-wing politicians who thought it too risqué to receive federal funding, exhibits his studio art for the first time. So does John Roecker, a musician and filmmaker best known for the documentary series Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Gay Porn Stars. Twelve other artists join them in the show, curated by Lisa Derrick and focusing on the theme of selling oneself. The opening night reception, from 7 to 11 Saturday, includes a performance by Johnny and the Madcaps, featuring music by Roecker, plus a live DJ set from noted trance composer Alex Gordon. The exhibition is open through January 25. More info here. — Trudy Ring
