The second edition of the Queer New York International Arts Festival - a festival of contemporary performance and visual art that explores and broadens the concept of “queer” (in) art-will take place from Wednesday, October 23 through Sunday, November 3, at multiple venues throughout New York City.

The 2013 festival features an exciting lineup of some of the most innovative artists of our time, many of whom are presenting their work in New York for the first time. QNYIA 2013 is produced and curated by Zvonimir Dobrović and the late André von Ah.

Twenty years ago today, the New Museum was draped in black in recognition of Day Without Art—the national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. The LED sign from “Let The Record Show…” was installed in the Museum’s Broadway window and programmed with current statistical information on the AIDS crisis by Gran Fury and ACT UP. Please join us today as we recognize Day With(out) Art with a special screening of Jim Hubbard’s United in Anger: A History of ACT UP.

The Sexuality Spectrum

October 10, 2012 – June 28, 2013

"The Sexuality Spectrum offers a groundbreaking exploration of sexual orientation through the creativity of over fifty international contemporary artists. Artists including Judy Chicago, Joan Snyder, Arthur Tress, Archie Rand, Albert Winn, Trix Rosen, Joan Roth, and Mark Podwal explore a broad range of subjects:the evolving social and religious attitudes toward sexuality; issues of alienation, marginalization, and inclusion; the impact on the family, child-rearing, and life stages; violence and persecution; AIDS/HIV; and the influence of the LGBTQI community on the Jewish and larger world."

GLAAD Art Auction is tonight

The GLAAD National Board of Directors, President Herndon Graddick, and the Planning Committee and Co-chairs Johnny Gonzales, Christian Hagedorn, James Kleeman invite you to join us for our annual art fundraiser – GLAAD Art Auction, formerly known as OUTAuction.

With over 100 unique pieces of art to bid on throughout the evening, all funds raised support GLAAD’s culture changing work. From standing up for Ellen DeGeneres when anti-gay activists called for her to be fired as JC Penney’s new spokesperson, to working alongside an Ohio mom to get the Boy Scouts to end its policy banning gay scouts and scout leaders, GLAAD is sharing the stories that move us closer to equality.

PETITE MORTRECOLLECTIONS OF A QUEER PUBLIC
Discussion and Q&A with
Billy Miller, contributing artist
Carlos Motta, co-editor
February 28; 6-8 pm   Leslie-Lohman Museum26 Wooster St., NYC

A project created in collaboration between Carlos Motta and Joshua Lubin-Levy, it features drawing contributions from an inter-generational group of over 60 gay men and texts by 15 authors. Petite Mort reminds us that public sex is not exclusively about a personal pursuit of pleasure-they also contain the seeds of historical, social, and political action.

Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art and GMHC Host Exhibition Featuring Artists Living with HIV/AIDS
Starting on November 29, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art will generously donate its gallery, for a third year, to host, “Art & AIDS: 30 Years,” an exhibition featuring 50 artists living with HIV/AIDS. Over 150 works of art, utilizing diverse media, will be on display through December 3. The exhibition will mark the 30th year of the HIV/AIDS epidemic by including a memorial wall of artists who have died of AIDS.
The Leslie-Lohman Gay Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art has just been granted museum status through the State of New York Board of Regents. For more than 20 years as a non-profit organization, it has provided an outlet for art work that is unambiguously gay and which is frequently denied access to mainstream venues. Founded by Charles W. Leslie and Fritz Lohman, the Museum will continue to mount exhibitions of work in all media by gay and lesbian artists with an emphasis on subject matter that speaks directly to gay and lesbian sensibilities — including, erotic, political, romantic, and social imagery—and providing special support for emerging and underrepresented artists.
