The indoor/outdoor participatory event brings together 35+ artists, art collectives, and organizations to celebrate intersectional gender identities building community and launching a SEXUAL HARASSMENT FREE ZONE in partnership with Peace Over Violence.

LOVE &/OR FEAR is the second public art event in the Dis…Miss series compromised of audience engaging exchanges about gender using multi-media platforms. To view last years event, click HERE.

LOVE &/OR FEAR evolves from Dis…Miss and will be documented in a publication next year. Dis…Miss is comprised of a series of audience engaging exchanges about gender, using videos, performance art, and postcards.  Each Dis…Miss postcard has an image and a related question that viewers answer anonymously. The answers are gathered and analyzed to be displayed as animated infographics. Screenings, workshops, exhibitions and discussions have occurred and will continue throughout the greater Los Angeles area and beyond.
