Bodies of Resistance, an exhibition devoted to the works of the internationally renowned pioneer of queer art Del LaGrace Volcano (b. 1957), consists of a diverse gallery of photographs of persons, bodies, genders and sexualities that reject society’s heteronormative classifications.
The exhibition offers a diverse presentation of Volcano’s portraits, self-portraits and their documentary photographic background as well as various projects from the late 1970s right up to the 2020s.
Del LaGrace Volcano, who was born in California, is a photographic artist, performer and activist. They studied photography in the USA and Great Britain. Today, Volcano lives and works in Örebro in Sweden.
Bodies of Resistance is Del LaGrace Volcano’s first solo exhibition in Finland.
