"THE SUBJECT IS BLACK"
curated by Lawrence Graham-Brown
Art exhibition and salon aims to intervene into the global conversation about the "Black" body, a body that is perpetually in flux via restraint, attack, denial et al. Here these eight artists use the body as the predominant theme, gendered and sexualized in all its strength and glory, questioning a 21st century predicament and narrative.
All works will be offered for sale and many works will be under $500.00

GMHC: Art & AIDS
Curated by Osvaldo Perdomo and David Livingston
Art & AIDS is an exhibition featuring artists living with HIV and AIDS. The exhibition is an outcome of weekly therapeutic art classes run by GMHC's Volunteer, Work and Wellness Center. Art teachers donate their time to teach classes for GMHC's clients (consisting of professional and non-professional artists), and assist in curating the annual exhibition. Artwork sold during the exhibition allows artists to increase their financial independence, plus, the artists are then able to participate in additional art shows as most galleries mandate that artists must have already been part of one show.
February 13 - April 19, 2015
Curated by Jennifer Tyburczy
Irreverent is inspired by the censorship of works of art by artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe, David Wojnarowicz and others. It will explain how sexuality has been, and continues to be, used as a tool to censor LGBTQ cultural artwork. The exhibition will include work excluded due to issues of immigration, religion, race, gender, disability and politics.
Opening Reception: February 13, 6-8 pm
