Hidden Subject

Photography by Gerardo Vizmanos

Hidden Subject deals with movement, bodies and shapes, contrasting a sense of serenity with the tension of a latent sexuality that could be present but remains hidden. Gerardo Vizmanosí work is heavily influenced by his experience of being born into a heteronormative society which tolerates gay men who are able to hide within assigned roles.

The concept of subject is central to Vizmanosí work. The artist uses his visual language to address philosophical concepts surrounding the notion of being. His work addresses paradoxes: Showing elements that can be at once present and absent from perception. Looking at these images,"subject" can be the one who is under authority or control, or the one who originates the controlling action.

Hidden Subject will be presented with a display of murals specifically for this show where Gerardo Vizmanos will show references and elements that inform his work. In this first solo exhibition, he showcases different styles and techniques and features 25 color, and black and white images. In addition to the show, there will be a gallery talk with the opportunity to meet the artist.

Prurient Interest

Michael Mitchell

This exhibit and sale is both a 20 year retrospective of the drawings and paintings of Michael Mitchell, and a look at the evolution of a commercial illustrator’s developing interest in homo-erotic art. The pieces range from tasteful nudes to explicit scenarios. These offerings include large scale works from public performance painting, the intimate little Erotic Alphabet, participants of the Amsterdam Gay Games, and mock-ups for invitations to Hands On - a private safe sex club the artist founded at the dawn of the AIDS crisis. The work celebrate the academic and the ribald… the sentimental and the salacious.

Found: Queerness As Archeology

Curated by Avram Finkelstein

Found: Queerness as Archeology is a survey of up-and-coming artists trained for the trail, socioanthropologists of the queer. To be queer is to be an archeologist: in order to find traces of ourselves in a world that prefers us hidden, we excavate. We sift through the past for clues about ourselves, driven by our own impulse for survival.

Haptic Tactics

Curated by Risa Puleo, Daniel Sander, and Noam Parness

Haptic Tactics is an exhibition that seeks to develop new ways of thinking about and engaging with contemporary abstract work made by queer artists. This exhibition seeks to expand the conceptions of queerness beyond same-sex object choice to the eroticism and sensuous qualities of materials, animate and inanimate.
