Irreverent: A Celebration of Censorship

Curated by Jennifer Tyburczy

 

Inspired by the creative and activist responses to the censorship of Robert Mapplethorpe’s art in the 1980s and 1990s and the more recent withdrawal of David Wojnarowicz’s A Fire in My Belly from the National Portrait Gallery in 2010, Irreverent explores how sexuality has been, and continues to be, used as a tool to prohibit LGBTQ cultural artwork.

Opening Reception: February 13, 6-8 pm

Eunuch Tapestry 5

Zachari Logan


Through large-scale drawing, ceramics and installation practices, artist Zachari Logan evolves a visual language that explores intersections between masculinity, identity, memory and place. The site-specific drawing Logan created specifically for installation in the Wooster Street Window Gallery is from a series of mural-scaled pastel drawings that cite the famous "Unicorn Tapestries" in the Cloisters collection in NYC. These drawings mix the local and the exotic to become dream-like manifestations of recollection. Although observation-based works, Logan combines elements in a way that could not exist in the natural world, so are fictive. Logan amalgamates patterned foliage (from personally sourced images of flora and fauna collected from sites in North America and Europe) suggesting the flattening patterns flora and fauna in textiles, further referencing the liminal spaces queer bodies inhabit.

Zachari Logan was born in 1980 in Saskatoon where he continues to reside, engaging a full-time studio practice. Logan’s focus on drawing, ceramics and installation practices intersect issues of personal identity, place and queerness, largely engaging his own body as reference. His work had shown across North America and Europe and has been featured in many publications worldwide.

Delmas Howe

 

Delmas Howe has a highly esteemed history with the Leslie-Lohman organization including several solo exhibitions over the years. His work is represented in our museum’s collection as well as others such as the Albuquerque Museum of Art and the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe.

A few years ago Howe exhibited a series of paintings of nearby rock canyons. Viewers said they saw flesh-like shapes in the rocks. This observation inspired him to do a somewhat converse series of paintings in which flesh suggested rocks. Howe feels that our times are in turmoil, and neither new technologies nor the government nor the church provide answers to the problems that face us. Howe says “In the rock face you can see that there is no answer…” For Howe the rocks are a metaphor for all that is “constantly changing, moving, turbulent, leading to some unpredictable continuing process” -- a process that leaves a visible history of incredible beauty.

Howe, a resident of Truth or Consequences, NM, will be in New York for the run of the exhibition.
