The Frost Art Museum, at FIU, is featuring the first comprehensive retrospective of photographer Laura Aguilar. “Show and Tell” assembles more than one hundred works produced over three decades. Through photographs and videos that are frequently political as well as personal, and which traverse performative, feminist, and queer art genres, the artist offers candid portrayals of herself, her friends and family, and LGBT and Latinx communities. Aguilar’s practice has intuitively evolved over time as she struggled to negotiate and navigate her ethnicity and sexuality, her challenges with depression and auditory dyslexia, and the acceptance of her body. This exhibition features the story of an artist who has emerged as a powerful voice for numerous marginalized groups. www.frost.fiu.edu.
