Image: James Bidgood, “Pan,” late 1960s, Digital C-print.

James Bidgood’s image “Pan” is on display as part of a group show at the ONE Archives Gallery & Museum at the University of Southern California.

The exhibition, titled “The Classical Nude and the Making of Queer History,” investigates the centrality of the classical nude over centuries of art making, from antiquity to contemporary art, and explores the subject’s influence on the formation and expression of queer identity. This exhibition at the ONE Gallery is the first west coast showing of works drawn from the collections of the Leslie Lohman Museum in New York, and is a condensed preview of a show to open at the Leslie Lohman Museum in October 2014.
