DESCRIPTION

Two Exhibitions celebrating Queer History
February 15 to March 31
Opening reception – February 15, 2012 6-8 pm
Reception honoring Jonathan Ned Katz: February 16th, 6-8 pm

Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art presents two simultaneous exhibitions, each designed to celebrate Queer History.  "Rare & Raw", curated by Steph Rogerson and Kelly McCray, is a combination of contemporary installations, archival photographs, drawings, ephemera and video, exploring themes of queer history, visibility and notions of representations, pairing works of more senior artists with their younger counterparts in order to cast light upon the different ways in which intergenerational artists engage with the same issues. "Making History, Making Art: the Work of Jonathan Ned Katz", curated by Jonathan David Katz, retraces the creative career this late-emerging visual artist, a renowned historian of gay and queer history and lifelong West Village resident, and underscores the inherent social-historical content of art by illustrating how profoundly a shifting political landscape remade the field for representing sexual difference.
