An Abundance of Love and Affection: Affirmations from our Queer Ancestors in the Archives

Monday, May 16, 2022 - 3:30pm to Wednesday, August 31, 2022 - 3:30pm

The Center for Primary Research and Training presents An Abundance of Love and Affection: Affirmations from our Queer Ancestors in the Archives featuring materials from the Elaine Mikels Papers housed in UCLA Library Special Collections. This exhibition explores how one can forge connections that transcend time and space through the oral and spiritual practice of Self-Affirmation. Viewers are invited to speak or ponder Mikel’s guiding affirmations as they engage with the exhibition in the hopes of creating an affective experience that releases love, vulnerability, and a range of emotions from our Queer Ancestors living on in the archives.
