Gallery 6 contains exhibitions, interviews, essays, and other information that helps contextualize our Queer project.


Curator, Tirza True Latimer, features in this exhibition works by artists who use photography against the documentary grain. Their practices – which include art, performance, visual narrative, painting, sculpture, collage, inlay, montage, and video – rely on photographic technology in some phase of the creative process. However diverse, these artists share an awareness of the camera’s capacity “to queer” representations of artistic, social, psychic and/or sexual subjectivity. The exhibition’s emphasis on photography, with its historical implication in the maintenance of embodied hierarchies, calls attention to some of the ways that representational conventions and genres can be “turned” in productively critical ways.

Reframing Sexuality in a Post-Warhol World

This exhibition is, broadly, about such reframings, about art as a quotation inside a quotation inside a quotation, the endless reframing exposing the inherently constructed quality of representation, even at its most putatively natural.

Artists include: Patricia Cronin, Alejandro Diaz, Chitra Ganesh, Karen Heagle, Joe Heidecker, Deborah Kass, Rudy Lemcke, Scott Lifshutz, Franco Mondini-Ruiz, Liss Platt, Hiroshi Sunain, Steed Taylor, San Van Aken, Andy Warhol.

Jonathan D. Katz

Jonathan D. Katz works at the intersection of art history and queer history, one of the busiest intersections in American culture, and yet one of the least studied. A specialist in the arts of the Cold War era, he is centrally concerned with the question of why the American avant-garde came to be dominated and defined by queer artists during what was perhaps the single most homophobic decade in this nation's history.
