ANDREA GEYER in 'Kindred Solidarities: Queer Community and Chosen Family'

The 8th Floor, New York, USA
21 Oct 2021 - 22 Jan 2022
The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation is pleased to present Kindred Solidarities: Queer Community and Chosen Families, a group exhibition reflecting on chosen familial structures in the context of queer culture, expanding beyond the notion of a heteronormative, nuclear, or government mandated framework. Kindred Solidarities features works by Jamie Diamond, Andrea Geyer, Nan Goldin, Larry Krone, Kalup Linzy, Carlos Motta with Julio Salgado, Parallel Lines (David Kelley, Jeannine Tang, Mike Cataldi, Hans Kuzmich, and Jens Maier-Rothe) and FIERCE, and Christopher Udemezue. Exploring the idea of a structure based on allyship, rather than genetics, the exhibition will address how family is defined through gender, sexuality, and the collision of global identities, cultures, and community experiences.
