Tenderloin Museum | 398 Eddy St., San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
The “Black, blind, gay, sexy artist of San Francisco” Lord Frederick will be present to discuss his interdisciplinary practice across sculpture, fashion, illustration, and poetry, as well as his first solo exhibition Memory of Sight, on view at TLM through July 29!
A leather man, a doll enthusiast, and a spiritualist, Lord Frederick lives his personal style unabashedly and completely. He can often be seen navigating the chaotic streets of the TL dudded out in chaps and sporting a wig of silvery white. Imagination and nostalgia animate his present and his capacity to thread joy, exuberance, and whimsy into his trademark handmade dolls.
With Memory of Sight, Lord Frederick invites attendees to “see what he remembers seeing, and to see what he sees now.” In a world increasingly dominated by visual culture, Lord Frederick upends the primacy of the visual, channeling his sensory understanding of the world to subvert commonly held assumptions about identity, race, and ability.
This artist talk is presented in conjunction with the monthly SF First Thursday Art Walk in the Tenderloin & Lower Polk neighborhoods. For more information or to get a taste of Lord Frederick’s world, follow him on his Tik Tok, Instagram, or Twitter.
