LGBTQ art shows in a city near you this summer

Safe/Haven: Gay Life in 1950s Cherry Grove at the NY Historical Society

NBC News has an interesting article that will appeal to queer art lovers. The article, LGBTQ art shows are lighting up museums from Boston to Berlin, showcases several ongoing exhibits including the MFA exhibit, by Samantha Nye | My Hearts in a Whirl that opened last month.

I’ve copied the exhibit’s description and shared it below but the NBC article (see link above) features multiple shows taking place this summer in cities worldwide including: Berlin, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Phoenix, and Providence.

Museum of Fine Arts / Boston: In this queerified and age-embracing homage to classic 1950s and ‘60s Scopitone film reels — a precursor to music videos that played inside special jukeboxes in cocktail lounges nationwide, Samantha Nye recreates the old film shorts shot-for-shot with queer elder actors, discarding ageist and ableist definitions of sexuality and eroticism, and expanding our vision of love, sex, agency and belonging.
