Cabaret is a series of Santiago Echeverry’s three-dimensional portraits and videos of the LGBTQ community and its allies in Wilton Manors / Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Drag queens, gogo dancers, bartenders, artists, DJs, nudists – all are part of a group of unsung heroes that cherish their freedom as Americans and immigrants in the U.S. and celebrate their own individuality. The author of the project has been living and working in Wilton Manors for over a year, becoming part of a life that in other parts of the world would be considered "underground."
This exhibition is presented as a part of Indie Grits, themed this year as Visiones. Visiones is inspired by the rapid and growing migration from Latin America that is changing the face of the American Southeast. Through the theme Visiones, we seek not only to explore different Latin American realities, but also to celebrate Latin identities and voices.
