Beautiful By Night Film Screening with Artist James Hosking

Beautiful By Night Beautiful By Night
Beautiful By Night
Join us for a screening of James Hosking's documentary Beautiful by Night. Includes a conversation with the artist and appearances by two of the film's protagonists: Olivia Hart and Donna Personna.

About the exhibition "Beautiful By Night" (in the Institute for the Humanities Gallery through Feb 21):
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.
