Please join us for the opening of Radical Love - curated by Jaishri Abichandani and Natasha Becker.

The works in Radical Love are based in the ideas of devotion, adoration, abundance, and beauty, where the marginalized bodies of queer, black, brown, disabled communities are celebrated, adorned, and revered. The artists in Radical Love present love for community and self-love which inspires revolution and protest, love for the natural world and our inextricable link and responsibility to care for mother earth, love of mother and child, devotion as scripted by religion and subverted by artists.

At this opening event, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the show. If you are unable to make the opening, the gallery is free and open to the public, Monday through Saturday, 11am - 6pm.

Exhibiting artists:

Sue Austin, La Vaughn Belle & Jeannette Ehlers, Maria Berrio, Raúl de Nieves, Omar Victor Diop, Vanessa German, Jah Grey, Baseera Khan, Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt, McCallum & Tarry: Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry, Rashaad Newsome, Ebony G. Patterson, Jody Paulsen, Thania Petersen, Lina Puerta, Faith Ringgold, Athi-Patra Ruga, Nep Sidhu, Rose B. Simpson, Imani Uzuri, Lina Iris Viktor

The event is free, but we ask that you please RSVP. In the event we reach fire code capacity, you may be asked to queue to view the exhibition.

Please enter via the 43rd Street entrance.
