Join National Portrait Gallery curator Taína Caragol in conversation with David Antonio Cruz and Antonius-Tín Bui about portraiture as a platform to represent and honor LGBTQ+ communities of color. Both artists use portraiture and performance to explore the connections between queerness, their personal diasporic stories, and the communities that ground them. Cruz and Bui were finalists of the 2019 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, and their work is now on view in the traveling exhibition "The Outwin: American Portraiture Today" at the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts of the Springfield Museums, Massachusetts. The competition and exhibition are made possible through generous support from the Virginia Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition Endowment. This conversation is a part of The Tommie L. Pegues and Donald A. Capoccia Conversation Series in LGBTQ+ Portraiture.
