Morlan Gallery exhibition spotlights queer historical narratives

exhibition in Morlan
Morlan Gallery’s 2019-20 season features works from acclaimed artists that reflect this school year’s campus theme: Resilience.

A new exhibition at Transylvania University’s Morlan Gallery highlights artists who employ queer archives and histories — from the personal to the collective, the informal to the institutional, the real to the imagined.

Running through Dec. 3, “If I Could Turn Back Time” features works by Aaron Skolnick, Forest Kelley, Jared Phillip Buckheister, Jonesy and Jaime C. Knight. The exhibition was curated by Transylvania alumnus Paul Michael Brown ’13.

These artists alternately unearth, reinterpret or invent queer historical narratives in an effort to destabilize mainstream understandings of the past.

Please note, this exhibition contains mature themes.
