Nick Vaughan & Jake Margolin: Excerpts from: The Scene (Houston: 1969-1981)

February 3 - 28, 2018

"The Scene (Houston: 1969-1981) consists of eight hand-cut found road maps based on photographs of Houston Drag Queens from 1969 to 1981. The eight pieces fit together to make a large map of Houston. Based on images found in collaboration with Houston photographers, archivists, community members, and at Special Collections University of Houston Libraries, The Scene provides a glimpse into Houston's diverse and thriving drag scene in the years between Stonewall and the beginning of the AIDS crisis, and reflects on the city's historic and underappreciated role as a destination and refuge for LGBTQ citizens in the Gulf Coast region."
