This participatory installation celebrates the life of Sylvia Rivera, a gay liberation activist and civil rights pioneer of Puerto Rican and Venezuelan descent. Rivera's struggles did not relate exclusively to gay and trans people, as they intersected with issues of poverty and discrimination faced by people of color.
Julia Justo was raised in Argentina and currently makes her home in New York. Her interdisciplinary work combines photography, mixed media and social practice. She has exhibited extensively in the US and abroad.
