Fernando Carpaneda Sculptures of Chad Hunt and Shane Rockford Was Featured in "On Our Backs: The Revolutionary Art of Queer Sex Work" Exhibition at Leslie Lohman Museum of Art. On Our Backs: The Revolutionary Art of Queer Sex Work draws on contemporary works in diverse media along with archival ephemera to highlight the many links between queerness, sex work, art and activism, and the ways in which they have led to radical transformation. On view at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art from September 28, 2019 through January 19, 2020, On Our Backs brings together work from three intersecting LGBTQ groups: artists who identify as having exchanged sex or erotic services for gain; artists whose lives and work demonstrate a close allyship with sex workers; and artists who harness the power of pornography in their practice as a tool towards liberation.
Featured artists include Patrick Angus, Nina Arsenault, Robert Blanchon, Fernando Carpaneda, Tee Corinne, Ben Cuevas, Chloe Dzubilo, Juniper Fleming, Amber Hawk Swanson, Xandra Ibarra, Efrain John-Gonzalez, Bruce LaBruce, Robert Mapplethorpe, shawné michaelain holloway, Midori, D’Angelo Madsen Minax, Leon Mostovoy, Ms. Naughty, Pink + White Productions, Mirha Soleil- Ross, Annie Sprinkle, Pluma Sumaq, Veronica Vera, Khalil West & Ajamu, and David Wojnarowicz.
