The takeover by the avant-drag group explores art and gender in America in a four-piece collection currently on the website, which includes: their five-part collective manifesto; a piece about NY drag night BathSalts; the premier of Chez Deep member Alexis Penney‘s new video, ‘I Remember’ and an interview with Dia Dear; and Hari Nef’s poetic glimpse at identity beyond labels.
The affiliation comes as part of Dazed’s State of Sex week, which explores various forms and modes of contemporary gender and sexuality through seven days, including New York’s new lit-erotic magazine Adult. State of Sex, in turn, comes as part of the site’s larger U.S. summer project, States of Independence, which invites 30 American curators, magazines, creatives and institutions to curate the magazine for the day.
For some background on Chez Deep and its members, take a look at some of aqnb‘s features, including an interview with Alexis Penney, a review of his debut album, Window, and the premiere of Chez Deep’s Common Visions live performance video.
