Boys of El Barrio:
The Original Latino Fan Club
Opening Reception: December 12, 7-9 pm
Dana Bryan Artist talk: December 13, 3pm
followed by movie hour at 4pm
The exhibit, co-curated and produced by Tony Zanetta and Kymara features the film work of Dana Bryan. Bryan is a master of the lost art of creating the gritty, 1980's underground XXX gay porn traditionally associated with life on the streets in and around Times Square and in the disappearing or long forgotten hustler bars, and expertly captures the antithesis of the “All American Boy” stereotype of the porn of that era. Wildly erotic films and graphics are transformed into a steamy historic tale of Latino hustler life and survival on The Great White Way.
This historic, affordable art sale will feature framed prints, porno clothing and pillow slips signed by the artist. Original "Latino Fan Club videos" will be shown. Also planned is an exhibit of fine art and historic ephemera selections from The Leslie-Lohman permanent collection, which illustrate the history of gay street hustling in NYC.Meet Meet the curators, actors and film artist at the opening reception with Salsa music by DJ Fowl Play.

Art & AIDS: Amor y Pasión
Curated by Osvaldo Perdomo and David Livingston
Art & AIDS: Amor y Pasión 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 and by artists who have come to GMHC looking for help or support after they learned about their diagnosis.. 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.
Opening Reception: January 22, 2015, 6-8 pm
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
