5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Exhibition Celebration for Queer Love: Affection and Romance in Contemporary Art


Join the Lehman College Art Gallery at an opening for the exhibition that will be on view at the Lehman College Art Gallery from Valentine's day through April 28.

Queer Love: Affection and Romance in Contemporary Art presents paintings and photographs that illuminate both individual and universal stories of vulnerability, tenderness, and desire in the LGBTQIA community.

 

The exhibition, which gathers the work of almost 50 artists, opens in two New York City galleries in February 2023−Lehman College Art Gallery in the Bronx from February 14 to April 23 and La MaMa Galleria in Downtown Manhattan, from February 18 to April 6. Each venue offers works that explore the power and significance of intimate queer familial, romantic, and sexual relationships.

 

From cheerful, romantic expressions of love to depictions of non-traditional nuclear families, the artwork of these LGBTQIA artists highlights the bond between them as art creators, and those with whom they have the closest ties. The LGBTQIA artists often move from celebrating their love to proclaiming a place for queer people within a larger society. Lushly beautiful, their art creates a series of nuanced and reflective, but largely positive narratives, and love’s transformative impact on both the human experience and the artistic process.

Reading with Mark Christian: Booker T. Washington: A Life in American History

Booker T. Washington was an integral figure in mid-19th to early-20th century America who successfully transitioned from a life in slavery and poverty to a position among the Black elite. This book highlights Washington's often overlooked contributions to the African and African American experience, particularly his support of higher education for Black students through fundraising for Fisk and Howard universities, where he served as a trustee. A vocal advocate of vocational and liberal arts alike, Washington eventually founded his own school, the Tuskegee Institute, with a well-rounded curriculum to expand opportunities and encourage free thinking for Black students. While Washington was sometimes viewed as a "great accommodator" by his critics for working alongside wealthy, white elites, he quietly advocated for Black teachers and students as well as for desegregation. This book will offer readers a clearly written, fully realized overview of Booker T. Washington and his legacy.
