Jacob Todd Broussard Looks at “’77”

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Pulling from personal history, memory, queer archival records, and folklore, Jacob Todd Broussard’s paintings and drawings examine narrative structures and form while negotiating the instance of meaning-making through images. In his exhibition ‘77 he examines the history of his father’s teenage band formed during that year while simultaneously auto-mythologizing the events of its formation–a union of youths seeking belonging and fantasy. He uses the space of the statement to rewrite its origin as a folktale in the style of a vinyl record’s liner notes, an imagined context for an album never recorded.
