My Velvet Shadow May 11th - June 30th featuring the works of John Brooks, Anthony Goicolea and Kris Knight. Opening reception is Thursday May 11th, 6-8pm.
The exhibition “My Velvet Shadow” presents three Gen X painters— John Brooks, Anthony Goicolea, and Kris Knight—whose work exemplifies queer time and queer style. These artists came of age with the residual fear that sex, intimacy, and love could likely lead to death. Their work incorporates anachronistic coded language and cross-cultural signifiers. It neither takes on the mantle of radical sexuality as activism prominent in 1980s predecessors such as David Wojnarowicz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Peter Hujar, and Jack Smith; nor does it celebrate the unabashed sexual exuberance of many younger queer artists.
