“Dancers We Lost” is a comprehensive dance-history project honoring performers who died due to complications of HIV/AIDS. The Dancers We Lost exhibition is the visual component of a large history project, it’s all so sad, but forgetting these people seems even worse. The exhibit is now installed at the noble Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, a personal choice of artistic director Leo Garcia.
Exhibition curator Glenne McElhinney is a community historian and the founder of Impact Stories, a California-based history project that uses oral histories, documentary films and exhibits to make LGBT history come alive.
