This exhibit, the first to examine the impact of the LGBTQ+ civil rights movement on the art world, will be presented in two parts at the Leslie Lohman Museum and NYU's Grey Art Gallery. Through multiple themes—Coming Out; Sexual Outlaws; The Uses of the Erotic; Gender and Body; Things are Queer; AIDS and Activism; and We're Here—the exhibit highlights the work of artists such as Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol. It also looks at Diane Arbus' and Jean-Michel Basquiat's engagement with the emerging queer subculture.
