Ongoing Events

  • I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    2024-03-15 – 2025-01-05 · New York, United States of America
    I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    Taking its title from a drawing by artist and queer icon Candy Darling, this exhibition brings together a selection of works recently acquired by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art. Darling’s words evoke the multidimensionality of queer and trans life and artistic practices that insist on defining art and life entirely on one’s own terms. Taken together, the exhibited works–across various media and representational styles–embrace a spectral, prismatic approach to rendering LGBTQIA+ existence. Both contemporary and historical, the works elide the demand for authenticity and easy legibility, instead holding space for plurality, reinvention, and fantasy.

They are deeply rooted in culture and demonstrate our connection to nature. In times of climate crisis, threatened biodiversity, and social injustice, Frameout 2024 transforms the GARDEN into a venue for change and familiar garden metaphors are reinterpreted through cinematic perspectives. In short film programs, we encounter talking plants, a giant asparagus, and secret gardens expressing fantasies and desires.

    Hippolyte Bayard–Parisian bureaucrat by day and persistent inventor and artist after hours–is one of the lesser-known pioneers of photography. This exhibition presents an extraordinarily rare opportunity to view some of Bayard’s highly fragile photographs dating from the 1840s–the first decade of the new medium–and to explore his early processes, subjects, and strategies to achieve recognition. It highlights Getty’s treasured Bayard album, one of the first photographic albums ever created.

  • Transformations: American Photographs from the 1970s

    2024-01-15 – 2024-07-07 · Philadelphia, United States of America
    Transformations: American Photographs from the 1970s

    The 1970s witnessed an unprecedented explosion of interest and activity around photography, and was a hub for wildly varying conceptions of what photography could look like, how it could be used, and what it could stand for. On one hand, the 1970s were an apex of traditional black and white darkroom photography, as artists who had worked in relative obscurity were suddenly thrust into the spotlight. But it was also the end of an era, as younger photographers began experimenting with mediums, formats, and conceptual approaches that defied established modes of photographic art.
