David Evans Frantz

David Evans Frantz is curator at ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries. Over the past seven years, his work at ONE has sought to draw greater scholarly and public attention to under recognized histories of queer art and culture while connecting contemporary artists to the archives’ rich, yet largely unexplored, collections. In 2011, Frantz co-curated with Mia Locks the exhibition Cruising the Archive: Queer Art and Culture in Los Angeles, 1945–1980 as a part of the first Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., 1945–1980. In 2014, he was the curator of the show-within-a-show, Tony Greene: Amid Voluptuous Calm, part of the Made in L.A. biennial at the Hammer Museum. Most recently he co-curated with C. Ondine Chavoya Axis Mundo: Queer Network in Chicano L.A., a collaboration between ONE Archives and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, for Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
