STEVE LOCKE: in the name of love

New York, NY

The institution's press release follows:

The Gallatin Galleries is pleased to announce the upcoming show Steve Locke: in the name of love, works 2005-2018. Working in a variety of media—including painting, drawing, sculpture, video, and installation—Locke traces his own memories and the formation of his sexuality, offering a testimony of his loves and losses that he situates in the larger context of the vulnerabilities of the African American experience. In works that confronts growing up gay and coming under fire from religious extremists and sculptures and texts that echo the brutalities inflicted on the bodies of black men, Locke offers his intimate, honest inquiry of his own history which, in turn, interrogates the American landscape in which the work is made. Steve Locke: in the name of love, works 2005-2018 was curated by Keith Miller.
