Light Work presents Queer Moments with work by Laura Aguilar, Samantha Box, Jess T. Dugan, John Edmonds, Ajamu (Ikwe-Tyehimba), Mark McKnight, Rory Mulligan, Billy Quinn, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Pacifico Silano, Clarissa Sligh, Linn Underhill and Albert Winn. These selected works address image-making practices and themes that articulate and make visible LGBTQ+ history through photography. Queer Moments highlights the historical contributions of LGBTQ+ artists to the Light Work Collection.

Queer Moments presents photographs by artists who participated in Light Work’s programs between 1992-2019. The images reflect narratives in particular historical moments, from Albert Winn’s Band-Aid Series (1999) at the height of the AIDS crisis, to Pacifico Silano’s Untitled (2016). Queer Moments acknowledges the Light Work Collection’s role as an accessible resource for contemporary art, history and activism. These artists used their cameras to boldly confront inequities in our society and give visual expression to the experience of marginalized communities. Photographs from Samantha Box, Rory Mulligan and Paul Mpagi Sepuya embody the range of diverse genres in contemporary photography, including documentary, experimental and conceptual work.
