Robert Giard Foundation Announcement, "Gay Gotham" Panel Discussion Friday October 14th

Please join the Robert Giard Foundation Friday, October 14 at 6:30pm for a panel discussion at the School of Visual Arts Theater in New York City featuring Foundation Board Member Allen Ellenzweig.

Photography & Homoerotic Desire

Friday, Oct. 14 at 6:30 pm at the School of Visual Arts

Note this program will be held in the Beatrice Theater at the School of Visual Arts Theater (333 West 23rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues).

Led by boundary-pushing artist Robert Mapplethorpe and his patron Sam Wagstaff, alongside pioneering contemporaries George Dureau and Peter Hujar, homoerotic photography found its way into New York City galleries and museums in the 1970s.

Join the Museum along with the SVA Photography Department for a conversation about this moment in art history, moderated by critic Philip Gefter. We’ll spotlight the gay men who helped establish the art market for photography during this era and delve into themes of our new exhibition, Gay Gotham (opening at Museum of the City of New York October 7).
