Desires for Connectivity: Shauna&JaimeThis Saturday night Lisa Marie’s exhibit Intimate Network opens at The Fridge in Eastern Market, Washington DC. Including oil portraits, screenprints, and Prismacolor drawings, the work documents the network forming the artist’s life and queer community.

Shauna J Miller, Senior Arts Editor at the Washington Post Express and subject of the painting above, writes: “Lisa Marie’s portraits are too hot to freeze anything. They have pulses and heartbeats. Their subjects – with giant eyes, elongated limbs, bared breasts  – exaggerate themselves just enough to tell their story to the viewer: These are our bodies, our sexuality, our connectedness at this moment.”

Afterparty: 10 pm
