After Our Bodies Meet: From Resistance to Potentiality
Curated by Alexis Heller.
An exhibition that explores queer feminist artists’ responses to dominant notions about the body from the 1970s to present day. Reflecting the ever-growing diversity of feminist art, this exhibition provides a cross-cultural examination of how artists represent the body to challenge past and present forms of oppression and to envision a queer future.
After Our Bodies Meet traces the efforts of contemporary queer artists within the legacy of early feminist art. Bridging these historic and contemporary endeavors not only honors the pioneers of gender-conscious art but also highlights the evolution of feminist thought within artistic representations of queer bodies, including some that question the gender binary on which feminism was first conceived..

This talk is a rare opportunity to hear Robert Wilson as he seldom speaks publically in New York. The Museum is honored that he has chosen our organization for this special speaking engagement.

Robert Figueroa: Tom, Dick, and Harry: The Everyday Man Series
This installation, by Fort Lauderdale based artist Robert Figueroa, uses photographic portraits of society’s idealized males as portrayed through action figure dolls. These profile pictures say a lot about how we want to be perceived and how we create new relationships, be them professional or personal. Through those on-line portraits, we make decisions about entering a conversation, sharing intimate details, and in some instances, human contact.
