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

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
