Vincent Tiley, who participated in the Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) 2017, and his photographer colleague Bryson Rand have three pieces of work from their “The Origins of Color” displayed as part of the exhibit “Haptic Tactics,” curated by Noam Parness, Risa Puleo, and Dennis J. Sander, at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, in Soho. “Haptic Tactics” runs at Leslie-Lohman, ‘the first and only dedicated LGBTQ art museum in the world,’ at 26 Wooster Street, through May 20.
Seen here are Rand’s “Untitled (Fire Island),” an archival inkjet print, and Tiley’s “Indian Yellow Study Number Four (Can a Bathtub be a Fountain),” in acrylic and urine on linen, and “Indian Yellow Study Number Five (A Quiet Belief),” made up of brass sequins, gold thread, a handkerchief, and brass hardware. The card next to the work explains that the last “contains a yellow hanky given to the artists by a leather daddy whose fetish for piss play was a means of survival during the early years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in New York.”
Anna Betbeze, A.K. Burns and Katherine Hubbard, Cassils, Jordan Eagles, Jesse Harrod (FIAR artist 2016 and co-coordinator 2017), Carolyn Lazard, Ivan LOZANO, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Laurel Sparks, Quay Quinn Wolf, Carrie Yamaoka, and Sarah Zapata are the other artists whose work is part of “Haptic Tactics.”
