Jeff Miller’s Love of Hanging

Jeff Miller’s Love of Hanging

BY DAVID NOH | There is a terrific and quite gay as a goose art exhibit at the Atlantic Gallery on now, “Connection II: An Invitational Exhibition of  Artists Selecting Artists.” I attended the opening on July 13, and it was the most convivial gathering of like-minded art lovers, both familiar and otherwise, reassuringly proving that […]

Beautiful Edo Boys

Beautiful Edo Boys

BY DAVID NOH | To enter Japan Society’s exquisite new exhibit, “A Third Gender: Beautiful Youths in Japanese Prints,” is to be swept back in time to the Edo Period (1603-1868) and the “floating world” (ukiyo), a universe of pure pleasure and escape from humdrum ordinary life, reflected in outlets like Kabuki theaters and red light […]

Iconic Fashion Illustrator Gets His Due

Iconic Fashion Illustrator Gets His Due

BY DAVID NOH | By almost any reckoning, Antonio Lopez is considered the greatest of all fashion illustrators. Although his life was brief, cut down by AIDS at age 44 in 1987, he packed a whole lotta living into those years — as well as art, which in his case embodied a singularly irresistible blend of […]

Countess Dracula

Countess Dracula

BY DAVID NOH | “Gay Gotham: Art and Underground Culture in New York,” a new exhibit at the Museum for the City of New York, is a terrific survey of a variety of queer subcultures and personalities that once made our now malled-over city so vibrantly the center of the gay universe, and not just […]

The Pleasure and Power of the Body

The Pleasure and Power of the Body

BY STEPHANIE BUHMANN | In their first joint exhibition since announcing dual representation of Carolee Schneemann in 2015, Galerie Lelong and P•P•O•W present this influential feminist artist by pulling together examples of her critical but lesser-known works from the 1980s, ’90s, and today. Born in 1939, Schneemann has long been known for her discourses on […]

Museum Hours

Museum Hours

BY DAVID EHRENSTEIN | “Everyone chooses to remember what they want to remember,” Mark Jacobson observes in his New York magazine piece “What Everyone Gets Wrong About ‘70s New York” late last year about one of the “few times in recent New York history [that] have been so longed for, so endlessly discussed.” This longing, so […]

An Outsider Sees All

An Outsider Sees All

BY SCOTT STIFFLER | A prolific visionary held in high regard by peers from the realms of art, psychic phenomena, gay erotica, and Cold War counterprogramming, Ingo Swann (1933-2013) blazed a multiplicity of paths remarkable not simply because they are the achievements of a man ahead of his time, but also because he did not regard […]

Gay Art Goes Bigger

Gay Art Goes Bigger

BY KELSY CHAUVIN | It may seem hard to believe, but it’s been nearly a half-century since Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman hosted their first art exhibit. Little did they know that the gay art show mounted in their Prince Street loft in 1969 would lay the groundwork for a niche cultural institution that continues to […]

Southern Boys Dreams Come True in Manhattan  

Southern Boys Dreams Come True in Manhattan  

BY DAVID NOH | In my circle, the most hotly anticipated show of the holiday season is Transport Group’s “Once Upon a Mattress,” with a cast that includes Jackie Hoffman, John Epperson (aka Lypsinka), Jack Donahue, Jason SweetTooth Williams, Jay Rogers, David Greenspan, and Hunter Ryan Herdlicka. I traveled down to the historic Henry Street Settlement […]

Sharing Matters, Too  

Sharing Matters, Too  

BY DONNA ACETO | Being a lover of both photography and animals, I fully expected to be moved by stories of unconditional love, warmth, and comfort — the sort that come curled up in a lap and wrapped in their own natural fur coat — by “When Dogs Heal,” an exhibit about canines and their HIV-positive […]
