CulturalDC is excited to announce the opening of a new exhibition by Eames Armstrong and John Moletress. Perversion Therapy will be on view at Flashpoint Gallery from January 14 through February 4, 2017.
Opening a week before the presidential inauguration, the exhibition Perversion Therapy points to the anti-LGBTQ history of the president elect and members of his chosen cabinet through a celebration of queer bliss and domestic deviance. The exhibition features paintings, performance objects, and multimedia installations. It will also include a live performance at the opening reception on Friday the Thirteenth, and a second performance the following week on Wednesday, January 18. The performances will be outrageous – not to be missed! The artists will subvert the practice of conversion therapy—an abusive tactic of brainwashing meant to “correct” queer and gender nonconforming people. Instead, Perversion Therapy affirms queerness, along with transgression, filth, eroticism, noise, happiness, and friendship.
