The Men’s Room, “Hey come here. Into the men’s room. I’ve got something I want to show you that I think you might like!” I papered the walls the walls of a washroom with images of men from historical tintype photographs. Similar in age to the Gladstone Hotel, and appearing on the walls of one of its washrooms, these images tell a story of the more secretive trysts men of that area might have had in the confines of such a room. The images honor a history, ask questions about such behaviour now, and hopefully bring strangers together to see something beautiful in the men’s room.
Opening Reception is on June 25th from 7-10pm on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Floor Galleries.
TSG: Fall to Pieces is a 2 month exhibition of new projects created by LGBTTI2QQ artists about their experiences of disability, radicalization, class, and other intersectional experiences of identity. The show attempts to interrupt the idea of a homogenous queer community and reimagines what it means to talk about our lived experiences as artists from a diversity of backgrounds.
