An exhibition by James Hosking

Donna Personna by James Hosking
Artist James Hosking lived in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood from 2010 to 2018, during which time he developed the Beautiful By Night photo series and documentary film. The work is about the veteran drag performers at Aunt Charlie’s Lounge, a small bar that has had an outsized influence on San Francisco’s LGBTQ+ community for more than twenty years. Sadly, it is now the last gay bar in the area. The project captures the performers Donna Personna, Olivia Hart, and Collette LeGrande as they transform at home, backstage, and onstage. It is a candid exploration of aging, identity, and labor.

Special Evening Viewing with James Hosking in Conversation with Curator Amanda Krugliak with pop-up performances by Beautiful By Night protagonists Olivia Hart and Donna Personna Thursday, January 13, 6:45pm-8pm.
