Info

September 21-November 15. Gallery & library hours: Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Sunday. This exhibit focuses on LGBTQ and gender non-conforming subjects and explores performance, queer representation, and 'breaking' (involuntarily showing vulnerability) in front of the lens. Cate Barry is interested in how and why subjects feel "seen" in photographs, the ways in which we front, and what happens when we lose control. The first in every pair shows a person or couple posing, self-conscious, performing identity the way we all do. The second in the pair shows the same person caught off-guard in genuine laughter. The duality offers a musing on performative identity and, simply, a reminder to the outside world that queer folks are not tragic. They are bright, fun, capable of joy and humor, often in love, and while undeniably affected by patriarchal, misogynistic structures of oppression, they are not defined by them.
