Thanks to the support of numerous people, the catalog for Suggestions of a Life Being Lived, the queer photography exhibition curated by Danny Orendorff and yours truly at SFCamerawork in September 2010 is NOW AVAILABLE! This project was a long time in the making. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen! The catalog features a conversation between Danny and myself entitled, “A Queer Exploration of Three Public Themes.” The cover image was drawn by Jason Fitz Michael and Matt Momchilov and the catalog features full color images from all the artists featured in the show. Order a copy today through SFCamerawork! Or Amazon! And check out the write up of the book on the California College of the Arts News page!
Thank you to all who attended the gallery walk-through and panel discussion at SFCamerawork this past Friday, October 22nd. The panel featured the artists Jeannie Simms, Greg Youmans, Chris Vargas, and Eric Stanley and was moderated by artist and activist, Tammy Rae Carland. Danny Orendorff and I led visitors on a tour of the gallery, highlighting 5 different works and then during the panel discussed the year long process of curating Suggestions of a Life Being Lived, including the impossibility of the categorization of queer art and the political motivations the guided us.
Suggestions of a Life Being Lived was featured on the San Francisco Arts Commission’s “Culture Wire.” Check out the video episode and interview here.
Check out the documentation from the exhibition, “Suggestions of a Life Being Lived” at SFCamerawork on the flickr page here. The opening was packed and really brought the gallery to life.

Matt Sussman from the San Francisco Guardian featured Suggestions of a Life Being Lived in the Fall Arts Preview Issue. Thanks, Matt! We hope this brings people to the gallery on September 9th for our opening reception. (Photo from Aay Preston Myint’s SMILE).
