BONA DRAG: An Incomplete History of Drag and Cross-Gender Performance in Film and Video Art

Bona Drag presents works that frame drag within the context of the art world and in more experimental examples
by figures and collectives celebrated within drag culture. Drag’s flamboyant defiance of convention has made it a powerful form
of expression for LGBTQIA rights in recent history, most profoundly in the 1980s during the AIDS crisis
(which took the lives of numerous artists in this exhibition) and in our current politically divisive climate.
