Interface: Queer Artist Forming Community through Social Media
Curated by Walt Cessna
Interface is an eclectic mix of queer New York artists working in a wide variety of styles and mediums that became friends and colleagues through social media. This exhibition emblematizes a shifting time in the art world where technology allows artists to not only create in a different way, but also alters the way the public encounters them and their art. Join us virtually throughout the exhibition at #QueerArtInterface.
Opening Reception: May 15, 6-8 pm

On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life
Curated by James M. Saslow
On the Domestic Front features over 80 works from the Leslie-Lohman Museum collection and a few strategic loans reveal much about the social history of LGBT life today, yesterday, and nearly a century before yesterday and answers the question, "What do gay people do when they're not having sex?"
This exhibition is timely in a decade that has seen the unprecedented mushrooming of gay marriage, child-rearing, and domesticity, and increasing acceptance both legally and socially. The thrust of queer politics has shifted from asserting our right to be different and erotic toward demanding the rights of everyone else. The show will contribute to a long-running socio-political debate within the LGBTQ world: are we, apart from our sexuality, “just like everyone else.”
Opening Reception: August 14, 6 - 8 pm
