I’m very pleased that two of my favorite and decidedly not “family friendly” paintings have been included in this exciting group show curated by the talented Gwen Freeman.
Show details follow:
“Family Friendly” is a loaded phrase for those who do not conform to the hetero-normative model–the paradigm often described as “normal,” “just regular,” or “traditional.”
This phrase, “family friendly” can be interpreted by the LGBTQ community as code for “not including me.”
But, of course, gay, lesbian, transgender, non-gendered, gender-fluid, cross-dressing and queer people are very much a part of families all around the world.
This exhibit seeks to explore that fact, and to celebrate a broader more inclusive definition of family.
