Event Description Joey Terrill is a formative figure in the Los Angeles Chicano art movement and AIDS cultural activism. Painting and making art since the 1970s, Terrill has always explored the intersection of Chicano and gay male identity (where they overlap and where they clash) as a strategy for much of his art production. A native Angeleno, he attended Immaculate Heart College and lists influences as diverse as Pop Art, Corita Kent, David Hockney, Mexican retablos, and 20th-century painters ranging from Romaine Brooks to Frida Kahlo. His work conveys the energy, politics and creative synergy of Chicano and queer art circles in Los Angeles. His works from the 1970s and 80s are considered pioneering examples of a queer sensibility and Latinx identity. He has been living with HIV since 1980.
