|still from Fire in My Belly, David Wojnarowicz|
In response to the church’s recent call to censor the groundbreaking exhibition Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture at the Brooklyn Museum, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art is hosting Uncensored: Queer Art and the Church, a week-long exhibition to which anyone may submit artwork and all submitted artwork will be shown.
Uncensored: Queer Art and the Church is an activist riposte to the shameful history of censorship against LGBTQ art and artists by both the Catholic Church and Fundamentalist Protestant Churches. The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art firmly believes that all art should be seen and displayed without regard to content; therefore submissions to Uncensored: Queer Art and the Church will not be curated, edited, interpreted or censored.
Submissions are accepted online only.
