Beau McCall and his Curator Souleo talk about REWIND: MEMORIES ON REPEAT a new Exhibit at Stonewall National Museum & Library

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,


\The artist Beau McCall and his Curator Souleo (also his life partner) have a timely and heartfelt exhibition spotlighting the Black LGBTQ+ experience in America and featuring collages by McCall and archival material from the Stonewall National Museum, Library, & Archives (SNMAL). The collages are drawn from McCall’s debut artists’ book, REWIND: MEMORIES ON REPEAT which honors the legacy of ten of McCall’s deceased friends. Each collage is composed of McCall’s personal archival photos and papers, along with images from his clothing button embellished artwork. The collages capture the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, from Philadelphia to New York, during the LGBTQ+ rights movement, the height of disco music and the AIDS crisis. McCall’s work is rooted in framing personal memories and experiences within historical and social contexts. To aid in this narrative select collages are paired with an archival item from SNMAL that relates to the theme of McCall’s artwork. This pairing draws a parallel between the personal experiences of McCall and his friends and the larger historical moments that impacted their lives. Collectively, McCall’s collages and Stonewall’s archive reflect the joys and struggles of the Black LGBTQ+ community and demonstrate how art and archives can be used as tools to better understand our lives, find connections between the past and present, and imagine a brighter future.

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , ,


Dan McKeon has been THE photographer at every major event/party here in #Ptown for the past 10 years. A regular fixture in town and always with a big wide smile because amongst other things he gets to take pictures of all the very hot men that invade the town each summer.

Now with the very first Exhibit of his work Dan has taken advantage of the remarkable light that Cape Cod is known for and has focused on some of the iconic sights and the stunning landscapes of the area.

The Show at ARCADIA is running until the end of the summer
