What Happens Here Stays With Us

2019, Charcoal and fluorescent pastel on site-specific drywall, 96 x 169 inches and 96 x 215 inches.

What Happens Here Stays With Us takes the form of a one-night-only party where artists, performers, viewers, dancers, and works come together to celebrate queer practices that are perpetually appearing and disappearing. Historically, partying became more than a space for enjoyment and celebration; it became a bubble of collective thought and action, a particular form of space and time where underground communities formed to survive.

Zac Thompson creates wall drawings of home interiors with pastel and charcoal dust that can be swiped away by the touch of a hand; reminding the viewer of their constant state of change, as well as the fragility of our upbringings and memories.


The Rosemont, 2019, Charcoal and pastel on site-specific drywall, 130 x 400 inches.

Considering the ways in which The Rosemont (a Brooklyn gay bar) and his past two years as a student at SVA have influenced his independence as a queer person, Zac Thompson collapses both experiences into an expansive wall drawing of a hybrid interior space that reflects his journey as an artist.
