Open Dialogues: Stories from the LGBTQ Community is a series of targeted activities within the Center’s multi-disciplinary programming that are considerate of issues and narratives within the LGBTQ community in Hollywood and throughout Broward County. Open Dialogues was created to engage with the stories and identities of a diverse cross-section of LGBTQ residents while fostering conversations within the community at large. Activities have been developed with the guidance of the Open Dialogues Advisory Committee created by the Center.
Though Drawing on Likeness artists Ivelisse Jimenez, Gustavo Prado and Lidija Slavkovic work with different materials, imagery, structures, processes and forms, their approach to making has more in common than one might at first imagine. In a sense they share a likeness – a family resemblance. They hold in common certain conceptual as well as material characteristics, which they have morphed by their cross-breeding and inbreeding. Consequently, each work partakes of a general economy consisting of the political, cultural and historical appropriation, as well as issues of perception and cognition. By bringing this sampling of their works together, my objective is to generate an environment in which the correspondences and differences between their works unfold to reveal, wherein resides the effort of the artist, the work art does and the role of the viewer.
