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.

2:00 PM A Mexican State of Mind: Migrant Creatives in NYC


Join Dr. Melissa Castillo Planas, author of A Mexican State of Mind: New York City and the New Borderlands of Culture, alongside Mexican MCs Juan Carlos Romero and Audry Funk for a virtual discussion on Mexican creativity in New York City. The book explores the cultural and creative lives of the largely young undocumented Mexican population in New York City since September 11, 2001. This book is based on ten years of fieldwork with members of a vibrant community of Mexican migrants, focusing on youth culture including hip hop, graffiti, muralism, labor activism, arts entrepreneurship, and collective making. The spoken word poets will perform their work, followed by a Q&A. Moderated by Saralinda Lichtblau, HRM Assistant Director, Education.

*Support provided by Art Bridges. This program was developed in collaboration with The Mexican Studies Institute at the City University of New York, Lehman College
