What You Love, is an ongoing epistolary project that involves sending handmade love letters to public figures and private individuals to solicit and collect queer love stories. Ideally, it is exhibited with a participatory component so that visitors can leave their own love stories as part of the project. This interactive set-up can be flexible in scale and presentation as would suit different spaces. The resultant archive of over 250 responses includes written testimonies, collections of love letters, poems, and cherished objects.
What You Love was developed in residency at The Huntington Library, Art Collection, and Botanical Gardens in Los Angeles in collaboration with The Feminist Center for Creative Work. It was initially exhibited in The Virginia Scott Galleries of American Art at The Huntington in the group show Collections curated by Jenny Watts, alongside the work of Olivia Chumacero, Sarita Dougherty, Jheanelle Garriques, Zya S. Levy, Soyoung Shin, and Juliana Wisdom.
What You Love has also exhibited in the Advocate + Gochis Galleries at the Los Angeles LGBT Center in the group show Womxn on Womxn curated by Erin Adams and Essence Harden alongside the work of Cleonette Harris, Xandra Ibarra, Young Joon Kwak, Liss LaFleur, Adee Roberson, Ashley Teamer, Tia Thompson, Leila Weefur and Lorna Williams.
