This exhibition celebrates various ways that femme performance is depicted in photography. The subjects of these photos embrace femme as an aspect of their self-representation across genders, queer orientations, races, ethnicities, and time.
By dressing, posing, and digitally manipulating their bodies in specific ways, the artists in this exhibition comment on issues ranging from objectification and societal expectations to racial violence and the ethnographic gaze.
Nothing Gold Can Stay explores the universal yet nuanced human experience of grief. The disparate works in this exhibition showcase the range of emotions undergone while grieving, from sadness and confusion to celebration and fondness.
