Plexus Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Liss LaFleur in our Vitrine screening series. “Queen Bee is Stinging Mad” depicts a 3D rendering of a virtual stained-glass window, in which queer activist Stormé DeLarverie is positioned gazing directly back at viewers. Stormé, a butch WOC, was rumored to have started what we now know of as the Stonewall Riots in 1969.
LaFleur’s video will be on view in Vitrine on Sunday, June 30, 2019 from 6-10pm. Vitrine is an ongoing screening series of videos projected on our storefront window and viewed from the sidewalk. The series welcomes unwitting passersby to stop, discover, and enjoy the work of an international selection of new media artists. Please note the gallery is closed during screening times.
