Commemorating 50 years since the Stonewall riots that helped ignite the modern gay rights movement, NYU’s Grey Art Gallery is now showing “Art After Stonewall: 1969-1989,” which opened with a public reception on April 23. Curated by Jonathan Weinberg, Tyler Cann and Drew Sawyer, the show is organized by the Columbus Museum of Art. The exhibit is being shown in two halves, the first of which opened to the public on April 24 at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in SoHo. The show includes works from high-profile queer artists like Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol, as well as less well-known but still influential artists like Catherine Opie and Greer Lankton.
