The George Febres We Deserve: Photography and Queer Culture

Visual AIDS Research Fellow Eduardo Carrera investigates the artistic oeuvre of George Febres (1943-1996), an Ecuadorian artist, curator, and gallery owner who immigrated to New Orleans in the 1960s. Challenging prevailing interpretations of the artist's work, Carrera foregrounds sexuality and queerness in Febres' art.
