Assistant Curator of the group exhibition
“THE OTHER IS YOU: BROOKLYN QUEER PORTRAITURE”
“THE OTHER IS YOU: BROOKLYN QUEER PORTRAITURE” took place at BRIC Arts as part of the annual BRIC OPEN festival from April 24 - May 12, 2019. The portraiture exhibition featured the work by some 37 Brooklyn LGBTQ artists, displayed salon style at BRIC’s gallery. Curated by the textile artist Liz Collins and Anna Parisi, the exhibition features artists at varying stages in their careers and working with a wide array of media. The overarching theme, The Portrait is Political, alludes to the fact that all three exhibitions on view in the gallery focus on artists and subjects who represent marginalized, under-recognized communities in Brooklyn.
