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.

Opening Reception: February 26, 6-8 pm

STROKE: From Under the Mattress to the Museum Wall

Stonewall National Museum & Archives

2157 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors, Florida 33304

 

Curated by New York-based artist Robert W. Richards, the Fort Lauderdale edition of Stroke will feature 23 original illustrations. This exhibition of a forgotten body of work not only explores the male form, but for the first time ever, offers an examination of gay male private life, as experienced through magazines which were available on nearly every street corner in America - but often kept under their mattresses for fear of being discovered. The exhibition will feature some original illustrations that appeared in the magazines, along with other works of art that have never been seen publicly.


Gallery Talk: Wednesday, February 4, 7 pm
Robert W. Richards, Curator
Hunter O'Hanian, Leslie-Lohman Museum Director


Opening Reception: February 6, 7-9 pm
