Palm Springs Art Museum presents Michael Childers: Having A Ball, which opens January 20th through May 28th, 2018. This show is in conjunction with Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation. The exhibition highlights images of anonymous merrymakers at Los Angeles' 1975 drag ball, "Flaming Creatures", and portraits of Warhol and members of The Factory.
"Michael Childers pioneered a visual language that captured the potential of those who courageously used their own bodies as a way to expand our understanding of gender," says Elizabeth Armstrong, Palm Springs Art Museum's JoAnn McGrath Executive Director. "This beautifully curated exhibition evokes a time of free-spirit and creation, and enlarges our understanding of the cultural revolution Warhol facilitated."
