New York, NY

Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation
presents:
The Culture of Queer:
A Tribute to J. B. Harter

At a new (and old) location!
A new home... reimagined... refocused... revitalized...

Grand Opening Reception: May 2, 2006, 6 - 9 PM
Free Admission!

This show, curated by David Rubin, and first presented at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) in New Orleans is LLGAF's first traveling exhibition. It features the work of J.B. Harter and 9 contemporary Louisiana artists, Ralph Bourque, Brad Dupuy, Jenny Kahn, Audra Kohout, Michael Meads, Keith Perelli, Roberto Rincon, Maxx Sizler and Tom Strider, plus 27 works from the LLGAF permanent collection.

Due to the size of this show it will be presented in two locations. The major part of the show will be at the new main gallery, 26 Wooster Street, and the overflow at our Annex at 127B Prince Street (the old gallery).

~ This show is generously funded by the John Burton Harter Charitable Trust ~


THEIR NEW HOME

The new Leslie/Lohman gallery represents the culmination of over five decades of celebrating the achievements of gay and lesbian artists. What began as a modest art show at home for enthusiastic friends, evolved into the country's preeminent non-profit institution for exhibition, support and preservation of queer art.

Beginning with a flea market purchase in 1944, their collection includes over 3,000 conspicuously gay works by Paul Cadmus, Jean Cocteau and Andy Warhol, to name but a few. With the move to their dazzling new space, they mark the beginning of an invigorated new era.

Please join them as they take this historic leap forward.

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
