About the exhibition:
By setting out on a mission to photograph gay/lesbian writers and leaders in 1985, Robert Giard (1939- 2002) created a trove of powerful images of people willing to come out as members of the LGBTQ community in a time when it could have harmed their reputations and safety.
“In this exhibition,” says SNMA Executive Director, “we examine the work of an artist who recorded LGBTQ writers during the golden days of gay literature. This is when writers and publishers took risks and presented a trove of new news. Gay collections exploded at that time. We are happy to have books in our collection by the
subjects in the exhibition.”
The exhibition will feature ten large format vintage silver gelatin prints of the following writers and pioneers: Dorothy Allison, Justin Chin, Leslie Feinberg and Minnie Bruce Pratt, Joan Nestle, Pomo Afro Homos, Adrienne Rich, Sylvia Rivera, Sarah Schulman, Lanford Wilson and Jacqueline Woodson.
The exhibition may be viewed in-person starting Friday, February 11, 2022, from Monday-Friday, 11am – 5pm, and Saturdays from 11am – 3pm.
