I am included in a survey exhibition at LGBT Community Center in celebration of Immigration month.
Surveying the Immigrant Experience Art Exhibition showcases artists currently living and working in New York City representing 16 different countries of origin. While the artists may themselves be members of the LGBT community, their work reflects the diversity of the LGBT experience both in New York and their country of origin.
Of particular interest in the show will be how the artists’ experiences and perceptions in their original countries have transmuted and adapted as they have become working artists making New York their homes.
A wide range of works will represent various media and our diverse community: gender identification, race, place of origin, age, and level of experience.
Curated by Christopher Hanway, Surveying the Immigrant Experience Art Exhibition will include works by: Jaishri Abichandani, Tomer Aluf, Gilbert Baker, Dietmar Busse, Iannis Delatolas, Brendan Fernandes, Raul Flores, Elaine Gan, Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo, Gio Black Peter, Kira Greene, Stefan Hengst, Carlos Mateu, Leeza Meksin, Slava Mogutin, Arsenio García Monsalve, Qing Liu, Alexis Rodriguez-Duarte, and Jenny Zhang.
