Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin: Wayfinding

Friday, July 22, 2022

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Nick & Jake have spent the majority of their artistic lives mining the habitually marginalized and unheralded histories of LGBTQ communities across the United States, and how the legacies of elements found and forgotten affect the contemporary queer experience. Their primary body of work, 50 States, is an ongoing, multi-decade series of installations and performances made in response to little-known pre-Stonewall queer histories from each state. This profound vocational endeavor engages critically with perceptions of history and identity as America’s views of sexuality evolve at an astonishing pace, while provoking deeply troubling social and legislative backlashes.

Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin: Wayfinding, the artists’s first solo museum exhibition in Texas, is on view at Blaffer Art Museum July 15—October 9, 2022.
