Nude in Public: Sascha Schneider,
Homoeroticism and the Male Form circa 1900
Curated by Jonathan David Katz
At the beginning of the 20th Century, Sascha Schneider, German painter, sculptor, and one of the first self-consciously gay artists, was elevated to a prestigious post at a German university and was one of the most well-known and well-respected public artists of his time. Only a generation later, he was largely relegated to obscurity.
This first US exhibition examines not only Schneider's art, but the strange cultural phenomenon that caused his dramatic rise and fall.

Sex At The Disco...
Sexual Playground 1970-1980
Curated by Kymara Lonergan
Photography from New York fashion and fine art photographer Veretta Cobler’s book, "New York Underground 1970-1980," along with several of her never before seen vintage prints depicting the orgasmic culture, extravagant fashion and uninhibited party scenarios of New York City's infamous Disco era, will be on display during this exhibition. During this period, themed parties such as circus, Hollywood, dance theatre, techno and diva drama became popularized. Through photography, Cobler documented this club scene that blossomed during this pre-AIDS peak of the Disco era, happening alongside the rise of the Women's Liberation and The Gay Right's Movement.

"Push and Pull"
Curated by Frank Sheehan
"Push and Pull," opening on December 13 and running through December 15 in the Prince St. Project Space, is a sampling of works on paper created over several years by 40 artists from the weekly Leslie-Lohman Drawing Studio, in such contrasting media as wax, charcoal, collage, pencil, inks, acrylic and other watercolors. As the battle for same-sex marriage continues and the institution is redefined in many places in the US, artists from the Drawing Studio interpret the fundamental issues of male couples and how they relate to one another in the same space. This is the first in a new series of pop-up shows-exhibiting and selling work from The Drawing Studio. Works on display will be for sale.
