This event has ended.

After Everything: Gay Directions in New Art, an exhibition examining the art of gay artists in the post-everything society. Curated by Dylan Peet, the show features a diverse selection of works.

A queer sensibility has run through much of contemporary art since the end of abstract expressionism. Gay artists such as Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Keith Haring and John Waters have had major effects on the art and pop-cultural landscape. While their art is hardly restricted to gay subject matter, a queer sensibility sits at the bedrock of their production. From pop's cool fabulousness to John Waters' polymorphically perverse outsider's take on everything to artists coping with the massive scope of the AIDS crisis, gay issues have been at the center of art history since the fifties.
