X if it’s true that the ancient founders chose the site after consulting the omens, then, and also because we have lived there a long time, the place is so sacred to us that we cannot abandon it.

Aesthetics of Mobility is a conversation series between artist/partners Najja Moon and GeoVanna Gonzalez taking place in their mobile project space “Living life as practice”. Part-time exhibition space for “Supplement Projects”, full-time living experiment, the artist will discuss visibility and the politics of living via their inspirations, annoyances, influences, and goals in a dialogue meant to engage friends, strangers, and colleagues alike.
Here, the nomadic nature of the artists’ project space conceptualizes what a home could be. In preparation for traveling from Miami Florida to Houston Texas, the artists focus on conversations around who is left out of the historic narrative of the gay bar, the nature of fleeting, femme centric party spaces, to and the endless and transformative potential of an occupied box truck.
Thus, the creation of ‘MARIAS’, a speculative re-configuring of ‘Mary’s, Naturally’, as a more inclusive, queer, black and brown bar for contemporary times. An artist’s rendering of something that could be.
