Upcoming Shows of my work
On May 22, 2019 7pm at ITINERANT hosted at Smack Mellon and Curated by Hector Canonge. I will present #BIOGRAPHYofCOMPLAINT a live-art and online project that surveys the performatory nature of civil rights laws and institutional diversity measures. The venture is inspired by the writings of Sara Ahmed and the artist’s experience of academic gaslighting, after he reported bullying in graduate school.
In #BIOGRAPYofCOMPLAINT Leopoldo Bloom will assist New Yorkers with filling out local city civil rights complaints. Performing as a scribe, he will assist members of the public with placing their story into a recognized complaint template.
This June I will be showing my new photographic memes from #BIOGRAPHYofCOMPLAINT at a group art show : WERQ: Queer Labor and Work. NOGO Arts. Brooklyn, NY
This summer my first book How to Transition on Sixty-Three Cents a Day will be on display at the Center for the Book Member’s Showcase from July 18 thru September 21, 2019. Drop on by 28 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001 . Mon thru Friday 11 – 6 pm & Saturday 10 – 5 pm.
