AllTogether Catalogue Release Party at 154 Scott Avenue, Brooklyn
AllTogether, a now-closed group exhibition including works by over 70 LGBTQ artists from the Tom of Finland Foundation‘s permanent collection, lives on in the catalogue for which this party is organized. Divided into two presentations (one in Venice, the other just outside of Paris), the shows covered the waterfront of homoeroticism and the male form, as well as a gung-ho machismo that now reads as anachronistic (and totally hot!).
The event celebrating the publication is hosted by catalogue contributor Michael Bullock of Pin-Up magazine, and participating artists Gio Black Peter and Silvia Prada, who will also be DJing. The hefty catalogue proves that some of the show’s artists were clearly Tom of Finland disciples. His influence was more subdued in others. But it would be hard to find a gay artist who isn’t in some form a descendent, as so many rivulets trace back to his source.
Location: 99 Scott Avenue, near Jefferson L stop, Brooklyn
Price: Free with RSVP
