The Adonis Project: A pop-up gay art house
Ian MacKinnon & Travis Wood present a curated evening of performances, video, and interactive queer art.
Saturday, September 13th, 2014, 8PM
410 Cottage Home St. LA, CA 90012
The notorious Adonis Theater, a legendary gay adult movie house closed under homophobic pressure from developers, now “reappears” as a modern Brigadoon for one night only as artists from the LA queer community descend on Human Resources, also a former adult theater now an experimental art gallery, to share their visions around themes of Gay Sex and Queer Liberation in context of the current state of disappearing LGBTQ space and shrinking ghettos. It is a creative activist effort and sexy night of interactive queer entertainment and community.

Human Resources was founded by a team of creative individuals who seek to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. Human Resources is not-for-profit and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.
