Info

June 22-September 15. Wednesday-Friday: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. A new exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art features 27 major artists who have used portraiture to challenge, subvert, and play with societal norms of gender and sexuality since the 1969 Stonewall Riots--an important turning point in the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Leveraging the 'reality effect'--the prevalent belief that photographs accurately depict reality--artists including Nan Goldin, Peter Hujar, Robert Mapplethorpe, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, and Andy Warhol respond to how gender identity and sexual orientation were viewed historically and how they are lived today. The over 50 works of art in Be Seen: Portrait Photography Since Stonewall compel us to consider how we perform our identity through our clothing, accessories, speech, and bodily expression, in an effort to be seen.
