Opening Reception of Art after Stonewall, 1969-1989
April 23 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the opening reception of “Art after Stonewall, 1969–1989” at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprisings, “Art after Stonewall” is a long-awaited and groundbreaking survey that features over 200 works of art and related visual materials exploring the impact of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) liberation movement on visual culture. Presented in two parts—at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery and the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art—the exhibition features artworks by openly LGBTQ artists such as Vaginal Davis, Louise Fishman, Nan Goldin, Lyle Ashton Harris, Barbara Hammer, Holly Hughes, Greer Lankton, Robert Mapplethorpe, Catherine Opie, Joan Snyder, and Andy Warhol. Art after Stonewall juxtaposes works—many of which elude categorization—and music with historical documents and images taken from magazines, newspapers, and television. The exhibition is organized by the Columbus Museum of Art and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.
