This is the twelfth year Clifford Chance's New York office will feature art exhibits in parallel with several of its offices around the globe. The presentation, hosted at Clifford Chance's New York office, will highlight how artists and institutions are actively working to collect more inclusive and expansive LGBT+ historical narratives.
Artists and Institutions: Lolita Beckwith, Nicholas Buffon, Liz Collins, Janet Cooling, Gordon Hall, The LGBT Community Center National History Archive, Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt, Ryan McGinley, LJ Roberts, Pamela Sneed, Martin Wong.
In celebration and recognition of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and World Pride, Stonewall 50 explores the far-reaching art and activism the uprising spawned: the artists and activists whose influence and contributions have been historically overlooked and the history of Pride, which began with the Christopher Street Liberation Day March in 1970 and has expanded city by city into a worldwide phenomenon. The exhibition includes historical and contemporary artwork that traces these histories: photographs of early Gay Pride marches and pioneering activists like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera; works by contemporary and underrepresented historical artists who reflect on queer experience and visibility; and documentation of the increasingly intersectional focus of contemporary LGBT+ activism.
This year, Arcus groups will present exhibitions and programs in thirteen Clifford Chance offices: New York, Washington, D.C., London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Madrid, Paris, Perth, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Milan.
