WYD 

At B4bel4b.

WYD is internet shorthand for “what you doing?” It’s also the title of Oakland artist and performer Adrian Clutario’s one-night-only solo show on March 19 at B4bel4b (184 10th St., Oakland) as part of its Emergent Media Lab series, which showcases contemporary Bay Area new media art. For the show, Clutario interrogates his experiences on social media platforms targeted towards gay men, honing in on his perspective as a queer, femme, person of color. Specifically, Clutario will be presenting paintings, sculpture, and performance that confront themes of objectification, racial fetishism, and internalized misogyny. Clutario’s work is also informed by his relationship to his drag alter ego, Adriana Clitaria, who the show’s description refers to as a “gender binary blur.”
