Presentation: The Worlds I Inhabit

Description

Artist Michael David Quattlebaum Jr., aka Mykki Blanco, tells the autobiographical story of his origins. A child actor, poet, teenage prostitute, performance artist and musician, Quattlebaum is an activist and one of the only vocal HIV positive entertainers in the world. Laying bare the realities of racism, homophobia, abuse and trauma that would be critical pillars of his creative practice as well as the artist’s exploration of their gender identity we learn the making and unmaking of Mykki Blanco. Chronological and stream of consciousness, lyrical and factual, Mykki Blanco invites you into the story of his life and creative practice.
