Born in 1952, Kaucyila Brooke is a Los Angeles based artist and professor at CalArts. Brooke works primarily in video and photography. Her ongoing project, The Boy Mechanic documents the history of lesbian bars in locations across the United States and Europe. By cataloguing Kathy Acker's wardrobe, she documents a fetishization of someone's personal objects. This idea of fetishization can be observed throughout the exhibition.
