Secret Gay Box features over 15 artists who have navigated their sexuality through artistic expression. Like Wolf’s childhood box, this space will be one where art hides in plain sight, even where people might not think to look. The space itself as well as the artworks in it embrace the creativity that it can take to effectively conceal oneself, but also the beauty that can occur in freedom from whatever ‘box’ one might have. All humans have their own “secret gay box”, either conscious or subconscious. This show, the artists represented, and the act of creating a personal art collection are a way to simultaneously fill the box or open it for those around you.
Artists in the exhibition:
Patrick Angus, Paul Cadmus, Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Alton DuLaney, Hossein Edalatkhah, Don Joint, Joseph La Piana, Matthew Leifheit, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jose Gonzalo Garcia Munoz, Justin Olerud, Nathan Ritterpusch, Stuart Sandford, and Andy Warhol.
