This event has ended.

The Gallatin Galleries (1 Washington Square Pl, New York, N.Y.) presents the upcoming art show Steve Locke: in the name of love, an exhibition of Locke’s works (2005 through 2018).

Working in a variety of media—including painting, drawing, sculpture, video, and installation—Locke traces his own memories and the formation of his sexuality, offering a testimony of his loves and losses that he situates in the larger context of the vulnerabilities of the African American experience. In works that confronts growing up gay and coming under fire from religious extremists and sculptures and texts that echo the brutalities inflicted on the bodies of black men, Locke offers his intimate, honest inquiry of his own history which, in turn, interrogates the American landscape in which the work is made.
