Nayland Blake, acclaimed artist and chair of the ICP/Bard MFA program, speaks with photographers about the work of photojournalists Kay Tobin Lahusen and Diana Davies, who captured the decades surrounding the Stonewall uprising on film. Their work, which is held in the Library’s archives, and is now on view in the new exhibition Love and Resistance: Stonewall 50, is also compiled in an accompanying book Love and Resistance: Out of the Closet Into the Stonewall Era. With an eye to the ways in which members of the queer community love, live, and protest, it is as much a historical account as it is an inspiration for contemporary resistance in an ongoing struggle.
Blake will be joined by contemporary multi-media artist J Houston and photographer Richard Renaldi to discuss the legacy of Lahusen and Davies’ work and its lasting impact.Buy tickets/get more info now
