A new exhibit at the Leslie-Lohman Museum mounts a brick and mortar exhibit to a group of artists who use the digital sphere as their main interaction space for art fans and collectors.
Curated by Walt Cessna, "Interface" presents 30 New York queer artists who work in a wide variety of styles and mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, and installation. Cessna says, "What I hope the viewer sees is how wide-ranging, diverse, truly unique, and heartfelt the current art scene actually is."
"Interface" opens at the Leslie-Lohman Museum on May 15, and runs through August 2, 2015. Join them live at the opening reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 15, and join them virtually throughout the exhibition at #QueerArtInterface.
The Museum is located at 26 Wooster Street in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City. LeslieLohman.org.
