07:00 PM


Join DiverseWorks and the artists for the opening of Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin’s large-scale installation, 50 States: Louisiana, on Saturday, February 29 with a reception and performance in the gallery at MATCH (7-9 pm).

50 States: Louisiana unearths histories of Queer individuals who worked in the indigo shipping industry along the Gulf Coast and Mississippi River in the 1700s. Through video, sculpture, and sound, the artists envelop us in stories of the past and reveal those of contemporary LGBTQ+ individuals that have created pathways of their own along the Gulf Coast and rivers that connect Texas to Louisiana and beyond. More info…
