Vero Majano performs at “Still Here” June 11 and 12, 2015
What does it mean to grow up in San Francisco, to come out, to negotiate home, self, identity, family, loss, and love in a city widely perceived as a gay mecca? Vero Majano joins a dozen artists for “Still Here,” two nights of performance, dance, video and writing exploring personal memories of the 1980s and 90s during the city’s AIDS crisis. The performance is part of the National Queer Arts Festival at the LGBT Community Center in San Francisco.
Vero Majano presents “The Q-Sides” exhibition June 5 to July 3, 2015
In collaboration with Kari Orvik and Brown Amy, Vero Majano presents “The Q-Sides” at Galeria de la Raza in San Francisco’s Mission District. The photography exhibition re-imagines queerness within lowrider culture through re-staged, re-interpreted East Side Story LP album covers, a popular vinyl collection of soul oldies that is a soundtrack to lowrider culture. The exhibition runs June 5 through July 3. Opening Party June 5 at 6pm, Closing Party and Artist Talk on July 3 at 7pm. Galeria de la Raza is at 2857 24th Street @ Bryant St., SF.
