This year marks the 20th anniversary Emanuel Xavier’s self-published chapbook Pier Queen, a poetic manifesto about his personal experiences coming of age as a former street hustler, drug dealer/addict, homelessness and survivor of child abuse. To celebrate this LGBTQ Latinx and POC milestone, Rebel Satori Press has reissued the book with brand new cover art featuring a photograph by Richard Renaldi that captures the spirit and defiance of the Christopher Street West Side Highway piers. As part of Sweety’s Radio: Edicion Especial we will be honoring the anniversary of this chapbook with an exhibition and reception. On Friday, July 14, Xavier will be joined by percussionist Joyce Jones to recreate the spirit of late 90s poetry readings from the book Pier Queen in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of this landmark collection by a former homeless pier queen who went on to become one of the most significant voices of the LGBT and Latinx poetry movements.

Drawn from Xavier’s personal archives as well as artists in conversation with his work, the exhibition spans several bodies of work from throughout Xavier’s career; from videos, event flyers, fan notes, memorabilia from that era as well as photographs by Richard Renaldi and artwork by Gabriel Garcia Roman.

Interview: Friday, July 14 from 6-8P, hosted by Sweety’s member Ximena Izquierdo Ugaz

Raul grew up between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and his drawings often reference the landscape, buildings, and characters from his childhood. Raul’s work on Lowriders in Space is done completely in ballpoint pen, a decision to reference his first tools as a young artist, often making fan art of comic book characters. For this interactive exhibition at Cuchifritos, Raul’s original illustrations from the “Lowriders” series will be installed in allusion to newsstand vendors displays in Ciudad Juarez, along with a wall that will be available for visitors to the gallery to draw characters from the series or create their own.

Sweety’s Radio: Edición Especial kicks off Friday, June 30 with the work of Cecilia Gentili. In an exhibition that brings together images, objects, and oral herstories, the project collectively speaks of the impact of Gentili’s work as a mentor and muse, as well as the importance of community and agency in the documentation of trans-femme realities. The installation includes selections from an ongoing photo essay made in collaboration with artist Serena Jara, and wearable garments made by Gogo Graham for Cecilia. Bridging the works are videos of Gentili’s storytelling, a practice that she has harvested as a tool for healing and instigating dialogue, and which informs her work as a counselor to other trans individuals seeking guidance.
