The Leslie-Lohman Museum: EXHIBITION TOURS

Press release via Leslie-Lohman Museum’s Weekly eDigest

CLASSICAL NUDES AND THE MAKING OF QUEER HISTORY

at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, New York.
Curated by Jonathan David Katz.
Sponsored by the John Burton Harter Charitable Trust.

Classical Nudes and the Making of Queer History, curated by scholar Jonathan David Katz, investigates the continued centrality of the classical nude over centuries of art making. This exhibition explores how images of the classical past have acted as recurring touchstones in the historical development of same-sex representation, and as such, constitute a sensitive barometer of the shifting constructions of what we today call gay and lesbian or queer culture.
