My Own Private Rodeo, By Coyote Park

ONE Gallery, West Hollywood

What does it mean to exist in a way that our elders weren’t allowed to? – Coyote Park

In collaboration with the City of West Hollywood and HIT, One Institute presents My Own Private Rodeo, by Coyote Park, a new exhibition of works by multimedia performing artist Coyote Park.

On view from June 1 through June 30, 2023
ONE Gallery, West Hollywood
626 N Robertson Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069
Friday – Sunday, noon to 5pm, at no cost

In navigating the world as a 2Spirit, Indigenous (Yurok), Korean-American transgender artist, Park asks, “What does it mean to exist in a way that my elders weren’t allowed to?” My Own Private Rodeo responds with a series of original photographic, video, and performance artworks by the artist that move through feelings of grief, mourning, loss, pride, redemption, and play. The exhibit elicits a deep place of isolation, sites where Park becomes a personal spectator of their own pain and a witness to their own transformation — a rodeo of aching glory: where they are the hunter, the hunted, the bull, and the rider.

At the opening reception on Thursday June 1, visitors will be invited to view the exhibition and meet the artist prior to an exclusive live performance by Park at 8:00pm.

My Own Private Rodeo, by Coyote Park is presented by the City of West Hollywood and HIT, in collaboration with One Institute, as part of the City of West Hollywood Pride Arts Festival.
