Dyke+ ArtHaus Visits the Bureau (Opening Reception)

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dyke+ ArtHaus Visits the Bureau (May 17-Sep 8, 2024)

Opening Reception: Friday, May 17, 6-8 PM

Dyke+ ArtHaus, based in Philadelphia, is a community-driven space for Dyke artists of all persuasions, centering those 40 and over. Invited to visit the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division for the summer, D+AH put out an Open Call for U.S.-based Dyke/Lesbian- identified artists, 40 years of age and over. Over 60 artists from 14 States responded by submitting works of sculpture, painting, collage, photography, textile, drawing, and installation. Visual art created at any time was considered.

Co-curated by Juno Rosenhaus, Dyke+ ArtHaus Founder, and Lola Flash, artist and activist, this exhibit aims to reflect the diversity of Dykes and the diversity of their art practices. The theme is the show itself.

The Dyke+ ArtHaus Visits the Bureau exhibition continues the legacy of lesbian artist exhibitions such as A Lesbian Show (1978), The Dyke Show (1979), Great American Lesbian Art Show (1980) and Rebel Dykes Art and Archive Show (2021).

Let’s get this party started.


“I have been creating art my entire life and I often feel like the token lesbian in shows and programs. I want to be part of this show to be in community with other dyke artists.” ~Emily Lombardo

“Because I believe we all gain when we set aside the reflex to be self-referential and instead make the effort to accept others on their own terms. And this exhibition encourages this possibility.” ~Kristina Feliciano
