Oli Rodriguez is an interdisciplinary Chicago-based artist working between photography, video, performance, installation and writing. His projects focus on concepts of queerness, which includes notions of passing, visualizing performativity of gender, explorations in appropriation, performative interactions with the public as collaborator, and a commitment to intersectional research, while referencing historical movements in gender, racial and feminist histories. During his presentation and talk at the University of the Arts Braunschweig (HBK) he will show examples from his latest projects including The Last Seduction and The Papi Project.

Oli Rodriguez is an interdisciplinary artist working in video, photography, performance and writing. Currently, he is faculty in the Photography Department at the School of the Art Institute Chicago (SAIC). His projects conceptually intersect and dialogue within consent, queerness, childhood and sexuality. He curated the exhibition The Great Refusal: Taking on New Queer Aesthetics at SAIC. He is a part of the monograph Confronting the Abject, named from his research themed class that he co-taught with Catherine Opie at SAIC. He just finished his book The Papi Project, which archives the AIDS pandemic througj his queer, PoC family in Chicago during the 1980s. Rodriguez has screened, performed, lectured and exhibited his works internationally and nationally.
