February 17 – March 31, 2019
Leslie Lohman Museum, NYC
Male Gaze: Life, Legend, Legacy mines the collection amassed for over 50 years by our founders Charles and Fritz, and tells the story of their tireless advocacy for gay artists. Male Gaze brings together work inspired by classical mythology that uncovers homosexual desire throughout history, pop-culture-defining work by renowned fashion illustrators and designers imbued with unique traces of erotic art, artworks saved from destruction, art dealing with issues of HIV/AIDS, and contemporary work by artists from the Charles Leslie Drawing Studio; recreating the experience of their loft exhibition that gave way to the creation of the Leslie-Lohman Museum.
The Bath, 2014 is part of the Leslie Lohman Museum’s permanent collection.
