I'm unbelievably honored to have work featured within the upcoming exhibition, Expanded Visions: Fifty Years of Collecting, at the newly renovated Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City. Expanded Visions (opening March 10, 2017) is a historic-collection show with approximately 250 works—spanning half a century and curated from more than 30,000 works in the Museum’s collection—which speak directly to the LGBTQ experience. The museum, founded by Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman more than 30 years ago, is the first of its kind dedicated solely to LGBTQ art. This show marks the debut of the new north gallery, which doubles the museum’s exhibition space.
My featured work, Fagget Fucker (sic) Gay Alphabet, turns hate speech from the wall of a Midwestern truck stop men's bathroom into a queer-positive lettering system for allies of the LGBTQ community to ‘answer back’ against written homophobia.
