"The View From Here: Creating Meaningful Art in Hostile Times"

Daniel Cooney Fine Art is proud to announce The View From Here: Creating Meaningful Art in Hostile Times, a lecture series in conjunction with the exhibition The Gay Essay by Anthony Friedkin. The lecture series will feature LGBTQ artists and advocates speaking on the topic of creating art in a culture of increased bigotry as a result of the current political climate.

The Gay Essay documents the gay liberation movement during the Stonewall Era in Los Angeles and San Francisco circa 1969-73. The photographs serve as inspiration and backdrop for valuable dialogue about today's community of creative LGBTQ people faced with a hostile atmosphere. Through a series of panel discussions and artist's lectures we hope to inspire ourselves to continue in celebration of diversity and artistic expression.

This lecture series was born of frustration and anger at the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. The need to unify and express ourselves in opposition has been a hot topic among creative people since November 8th. This is one way that the gallery has decided to address the situation. We hope that our conversations will serve as inspiration for all artists to move forward and realize that personal expression is more important now than ever before.
