Interface: Queer Artist Forming Communities through Social Media
Curated by Walt Cessna
Interface is an eclectic mix of queer New York artists working in a wide variety of styles and mediums that became friends and colleagues through social media. This exhibition emblematizes a shifting time in the art world where technology allows artists to not only create in a different way, but also alters the way the public encounters them and their art. Join us virtually throughout the exhibition at #QueerArtInterface.
Opening Reception: May 15, 6-8 pm

Eunuch Tapestry 5
Through large-scale drawing, ceramics and installation practices, artist Zachari Logan evolves a visual language that explores intersections between masculinity, identity, memory and place. Making reference to the famous "Unicorn Tapestries" in the Cloisters, in NYC, Logan amalgamates patterned foliage (from personally sourced images) with the flattening patterns of textiles thus evoking a deep baroque space. Citing the amalgamations of Archimbaldo, Bosch and Breughel, he re-evaluates historical European constructions such as the Wild Man and Green Man to further narratives of self-mythology. These become observation-based drawings, combined in a way that could not exist in the natural world, so are fictive, and explore the metaphysical as well as the metaphoric, constructing queer spaces that mix the local and the exotic to become dream-like manifestations of recollection.
Zachari Logan was born in 1980 in Saskatoon where he continues to reside, engaging a full-time studio practice. Logan graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with both a BFA in 2004, and an MFA in 2008. Logan’s focus on drawing, ceramics and installation practices intersect issues of personal identity, place and queerness, largely engaging his own body as reference. His work had shown internationally and has been featured in many publications worldwide.
