A Deeper Dive

Curated by Jonathan David Katz and Andrew Barron

 

A Deeper Dive takes a closer look at eight of the artists in the national touring exhibition, Art AIDS America. The national exhibition features work from over 100 artists made from the 1980s when the first cases of HIV were reported in the United States to the present, providing viewers an opportunity to engage with a breadth of artworks addressing HIV/AIDS in a manner hitherto unimaginable. It seeks to unearth the indelible mark AIDS has left on our collective consciousness.

A Deeper Dive aims to probe more deeply into how specific artists have contributed to that collectivity through a diverse set of strategies and approaches. The works in A Deeper Dive reflect individual difference while still evoking a strong sense of community and commonality, drawing our attention to the shared experience of the AIDS crisis that implicates us all. This exhibition will feature: Lawrence Brose, Brian Buczak, Jimmy DeSana, John Dugdale, Karen Finley, Deborah Kass, Glenn Ligon, Ann P Meredith, and Anthony Viti. Programming will be done in conjunction with the Bronx Museum, which will be exhibiting "Art AIDS America" concurrently.

Opening Reception: July 15, 6 – 8pm

Legend in My Living Room

Steven G. Fullwood and Peter "Souleo" Wright, Co-curators

Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture announced a new collaboration with Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art for the forthcoming 2016 special exhibition, Legend in My Living Room.

The exhibition will feature specially commissioned photographic portraits by Magnum Foundation Fellow, Jasper Briggs, of LGBTQ older adults in their home environments. The portraits of six subjects (ages 53-84) displayed prominently in the Museum’s window vitrines, will reflect personal stories of struggle, triumph and perseverance.

The project is co-curated by Schomburg Center Associate Curator of Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division and founder of ITLA, Steven G. Fullwood and SAGE Center Harlem program coordinator and cultural tastemaker Peter “Souleo” Wright. “Too often the experiences of Black LGBTQ individuals are erased out of history, says Fullwood. “With this project we aim to create greater visibility for this community by empowering them to take control of their narrative and public representation.”

Opening Reception: May 24, 6 – 8pm

Sexual Energy

Artur Pashkov

 

Artur Pashkov explores sexuality as energy and its mechanics and manifestations, whether it is a personal sexuality or sexuality in general. This is why there are photographs as self-portraits and paintings in the show to express the idea of sexual energy through photography and fine art all together. This energy runs the world, and nudity is an essential part of it, something that Artur thinks people should not be ashamed of.

Opening Reception: July 22, 6 – 8pm
