This video (link above) beautifully showcases the powerful artworks in ‘Art after Stonewall, 1969-1989’, which now leaves New York to headline Art Basel season in Miami (until January 5).

This unprecedented survey of LGBT+ art-making, from the first two decades following the Stonewall Riots, features 200 works, including art by Warhol, Arbus, Chicago, Wong, Hockney, Riggs, Lankton, Mapplethorpe and many more.

The show’s curator, Jonathan Weinberg, is interviewed in the video. Miami’s art community has been proud to propel the year-long celebration of Stonewall’s 50th beyond Pride month, by selecting this important exhibition as one of the city’s headliner museum shows during Art Basel, at the Frost Art Museum FIU (until January 5, 2020). The show will then travel to the Columbus Museum of Art (March 6 – May 31, 2020).

Admission to the Frost museum is always free. The Frost museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, and is located at 10975 SW 17 Street. Open Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m., and Sunday noon-5:00 p.m. Closed on Mondays and most legal holidays. The Sculpture Park is open every day. More information at frost.fiu.edu
