Queering the Collection

Join us for a tour exploring gender, sexuality, and LGBTQ+ perspectives in Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1900–1965. From Florine Stettheimer’s fabulous New York gay salons of the 1910s to Andy Warhol’s self-identity struggles in the 1960s, we will think about the diverse ways in which queerness has shaped the landscape of American modern art.

Patryk Tomaszewski is a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney Museum and a Ph.D. candidate in art history at the CUNY Graduate Center, researching global twentieth-century realisms. His dissertation offers the first scholarly examination of exhibitions of Socialist Realist art in Stalinist Poland (1948–56). His writing has appeared in ARTMargins Online and MoMA’s post: Notes on Art in a Global Context, among other publications, and he is an adjunct lecturer at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.

Free with Museum admission.
