  1. […] Lorenzo Triburgo is based in Brooklyn, NY. At the moment he is involved in many projects. Along with his partner, Triburgo recently screened a collaborative video, Monumental Resistance Stonewall at the LGBTQ Center in the West Village, the Baxter Street Gallery in Chinatown and at Speak Out, an event that collects stories from LGBTQ people. The pair have also been putting on what Triburgo refers to as “Guerrilla Screenings” which they intend to continue. In one instance they screened on the subway, in another on one of the lions at the NY Public Library. Triburgo is also curating his first show called Criminalize This addressing mass incarceration from a queer perspective. To hear more about this project and the rest of Triburgo’s current work, listen to the complete interview. […]
