  TODAYS GAY & LESBIAN EVENTS

Tuesday March 12th

About Face Book Launch
5:30pm - 7:30pm

About Face: Stonewall, Revolt, and New Queer Art, a catalog featuring a unique survey of 350 artworks by a global and diverse array of LGBTQ+ artists from the last 50 years- many underrecognized and overlooked. The evening begins with a conversation among art historian and curator, Jonathan D. Katz, and artists Maria Elena Gonzalez and Leonard Suryajaya on their works included in About Face and the state of queer art today. Though the Stonewall Riots might now be shorthand for the start of the gay rights movement, so much of art and culture has been 'queer' since the beginning of time. In About Face, Jonathan D. Katz explores this concept head-on, curating a tapestry of works that connect historical threads and reveal how gender and sexual identity have been interwoven by artists contemporaneous with and since Stonewall. With more than 350 artworks by over 40 LGBTQ+ artists across nationalities and generations, and original texts by artists and scholars, About Face is as stunning as it is important.
