07-13: Artist explores gay, black masculinity

imageStraight -- not that there's anything wrong with that -- Asian-American artist Jenny Zhang talks about why she's interested in a gay black hip-hop artist during a panel discussion Monday night at Apache Cafe.

Zhang inverts the male gaze and uses photographs, marks and words to reach some inner truths about Juba Kalamka, but wants her "Juba-Spider" exhibit (photo) to spur a larger discussion about how being gay challenges being black, about masculinity and women making art about men. The panel gets talking at 8:30 p.m.
