NY: Opening and talk – Cruising Pavilion

Cruising Pavilion, New York is the second iteration of the curatorial project on gay sex, architecture and cruising cultures by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos, Rasmus Myrup, Octave Perrault and Charles Teyssou, invited by Ludlow 38’s curator-in-residence Franziska Sophie Wildförster.This edition intends to map the city through the architectural and urban specters of cruising cultures, both lost and potential.

Cruising Pavilion, New York looks at the city’s histories, stories, utopias, desires, and memories of cruising, as well as its relationship with rampant urban development. As the historic landscape and model of cruising is changing or even dwindling, this exhibition proposes cruising not as a practice limited to men who have sex with men, but as an exemplary examination of space that harbors the potential to challenge normative logics of embodiment and identification.

Date: February 22–April 7, 2019
Time: 6.00 PM – 8.00 PM
Location: MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38, 38 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002, USA
