EXHIBITS ON DISPLAY

What did it feel like to be there?
12 Portraits from The Addresses Project by Gwen Shockey and Riya Lerner

June 15 through September 1, 2022

Third Floor of The Center

What did it feel like to be there? presents a selection of twelve portraits from a larger multi-disciplinary project by Gwen Shockey with Riya Lerner featuring lesbian and queer women who have dedicated their lives to creating and holding space for women in New York City from the 1950s to today. The individuals included in the series represent a diverse network of community builders engaged with social and political organizing, mental health advocacy, nightlife, music, journalism, visual art, literature, poetry, performance, research, safer sex, and kink practices. Each portrait includes a photograph taken in a significant location for the sitter, along with segments from their oral history interview, and selected ephemera from their life and work. To see the full project please visit www.addressesproject.com.

Funding for The LGBT Community Center’s Queer Womxn’s Series made possible by the generous contributions of Amy Ellis and Trudy Sanders Reece.

Queer Cuts: Reimagining Queer Collage

June 15 through Sept. 1, 2022

Second floor of The Center

The Queer Cuts: Reimagining Queer Collage exhibit features seven LGBTQ+ artists from New York City that utilize collage as a way to deconstruct everyday images and experiences, drawing inspiration from renaissance paintings, (queer) punk aesthetics, and erotica, all the while questioning the world we live in and its established ideals of beauty.

This exhibit aims to elevate the queer practice of collage making in a multidisciplinary manner, looking at various artistic mediums such as printmaking, industrial design, works on paper, photography, and film to name a few. Artists include Kendrick Daye, Gabriel García Roman, Brittany Maldonado, Luis Martín, Beau McCall, LJ Roberts, and Carmine Santaniello.

Queer Cuts: Reimagining Queer Collage Exhibition is made possible in part with public funds
from Creative Engagement, a regrant program supported by the New York State
Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and the New York
State Legislature and administered by LMCC.
