Jonathan Lyndon Chase takes on issues of race, gender, and sexuality in paintings, drawings, and installations that celebrate Black male queerness, and in doing so centers those who have gone unseen in the history of art.
Sharon Hayes creates video works and installations, blending a documentary style with the fictional and the speculative. Since her involvement in New York City’s performance scene during the peak of the AIDS epidemic in the early 1990s, she has collaborated with queer-identifying and feminist cultural workers such as artists, poets, and academics.
