32 years ago today, "HOMO VIDEO: Where We Are Now" opened at the New Museum.
As an accompanying text explains, the goal of the video works in the exhibition was "neither to affirm the dominant heterosexual practice nor the institutionalized subculture of gay life, whether female or male, but rather, to challenge the various ideological apparatuses which continue to harass, contain, and suppress the condition of homosexuality." #fromthearchives#40YearsNew

"We don’t see public space as neutral or abstract. We take queerness out of the ‘abstract’ and enact a queer conversation out in public. Historically, public space has held a contradiction for queer people; on the one hand we have been invisible and on the other hand we are frequently the target of violence in public. Part of the impulse in making this work has been to let other queer people know that we are here, that queer people are everywhere—simply put, we make ourselves visible." — fierce pussy
Nancy Brooks Brody (whose "Glory Hole (black on white) (vibgyor)" is pictured here), was one of the founding members of the artist collective fierce pussy. In the 80s, the group was inspired by the AIDS crisis, but their mission has evolved alongside society.

"Halilaj envisions these artifacts on temporary stopover, momentarily reunited as beings who live and thrive through movement, rather than belonging to any one site or context." — @domusweb on the bird-like sculptures in "Petrit Halilaj: RU" #petrithalilaj@petrithalilaj
