About David Evans

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 underrecognized 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 for the inaugural Pacific Standard Time initiative. He is the co-curator with C. Ondine Chavoya of Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A., presented by ONE Archives in collaboration with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, as a part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
