Alesia Exum: Neon Angels
Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art – Opening: May 4, 6-8pm Exhibition: May 5-6, 12-6pm I was inspired to create a photo essay after meeting the performer Shane O'Neill, who opened my eyes to a renaissance of creativity and punk couture happening in Brooklyn's drag culture. My first glimpse was at Fancy, a party hosted by Shane Shane in Bushwick, then at the Brooklyn Nightlife Awards hosted by Merrie Cherry at Glasslands, where a window opened to an entire cosmos of glitter, celebration, and upside down eyelashes. NEON ANGELS is an exhibition of portraits of nightlife luminaries from Bathsalts, Bushwig, Fancy, On Top, and Strange Loop Gallery, 2012-present.

Xiu Xiu: “Deforms the Unborn”
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum – On the occasion of "Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away," experimental band Xiu Xiu premieres an extended-length track about the agonizing experience of demonic possession, based on firsthand accounts of exorcisms in modern history. This new composition was inspired by Danh Vo’s body of work titled after obscenities uttered in William Friedkin’s classic horror film, The Exorcist (1973). During the concert the museum will remain open, granting visitors a special opportunity to view the exhibition in its final days. Danh Vo and Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu first met when Vo began incorporating lyrics from Xiu Xiu’s song “Fabulous Muscles” into his installations. The first formal collaboration with the band was in 2013 for the dedication of Vo’s sculpture Tombstone for Phùng Vo (2010) at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, where Xiu Xiu leading member Jamie Stewart sang “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin from the soundtrack to the popular 1980s film Top Gun to Vo’s father. In 2014, Xiu Xiu collaborated with Vo on the exhibition Metal at the Kitchen, New York, in which the band performed 5-minute percussion pieces while Thai gold pounders flattened 24-karat nuggets into gold leaf. That same year at Brooklyn Bridge Park Xiu Xiu presented Kling Klang, a musical composition created by 999 plastic vibrators attached to an installment of Vo’s We the People (2011–16) series, a life-size replica of the Statue of Liberty left unassembled. $25, $20 members, $15 students per show. Includes access to the exhibition and a cash bar. Learn more: https://gu.gg/2srabFf Photo courtesy Jamie Stewart

Wayne Snellen: Just between You and Me
Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art – Opening: May 18, 6-8pm Exhibition: May 19-20, 12-6pm Wayne Snellen returns to the LLM Project Space, a place where he feels most comfortable, a place of eminent intimacy, created in a time when artists could only show "that sort of work" in a shadowy venue held in low esteem by most gallerists, critics, and art historians. Times have changed. Snellen retired in 2015 to the mercifully calm environs of the Jersey shore, establishing his studio as a place of refuge and continuing development of his art but rarely venturing out of the safety of the studio. Now, with this show, he is ready once again to present his work to an audience in a sacred place. The eroticism and honesty of the brushstroke work to create a vision of interior tension held together by line and color in tune with his maturity and preparedness for the hope of that surprisingly intimate line between you and me.

Lola Flash
Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art – Opening: June 22, 6-8PM Exhibition: June 23-24, 12-6PM Lola Flash will be exhibiting her legendary photographs. Flash’s work is an insider's account of the many ways gender-queer people are perceived and how mainstream visual representation affects both our individual psyches and broader society. Where there was once no canon, each subject, in their own beautiful way, has harnessed a pride that transcends hate. They have made it possible for the LGBTQ+ community not only to survive, but also to live a life of love. This event will be a celebration for Pride!
