Chitra Ganesh: A city will share her secrets if you know how to ask

[site specific installation for the facade of Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art, New York]
Through OCT 18, 2021

Chitra Ganesh’s iteration of QUEERPOWER, our annual site-specific public art installation, wraps the exterior windows of the Museum with imagery of queer protest, survival, joy and the queer and transgender histories of downtown Manhattan. The work is visible 24/7 to all who pass by on the streets of SoHo through October 2021. If you aren’t able to visit in person, you can watch an episode of our Queer Art TV series, in which Ganesh discusses her practice with our artist educators; or watch a conversation between Chitra Ganesh and scholar Amber Musser on queer femininity, racial equity, and Ganesh’s ongoing practice.
