Untitled (Larry and Bobby Kissing) is a series of performances and public art that adapts a 1979 black-and-white photograph by Robert Mapplethrope of a kiss between leather men. Recasting Larry and Bobby in each iteration results in differences of queer representation and intimacy—two ideas explored through living history.

I’m working on a new version in the series that explores the monetization of live-streaming platforms like Cam4. What happens when Larry and Bobby only kiss or appear if properly compensated? And what if Larry and Bobby are not gay, white men? Queer, kissing economies. Performance dates to come.
