From Robin Pogrebin’s review for The New York Times:

Portraits of lesbians from the artistic circle of the photographer Berenice Abbott, who moved to Paris in 1921 and apprenticed with Man Ray; homoerotic prints by David Hockney; a sketchbook by Larry Stanton, featuring images of Greenwich Village faces in the 1970s, before AIDS: These are some of the works featured in the exhibition “Permanency: Selections from the Permanent Collection” at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in SoHo.

The museum was established in 2011 to exhibit and preserve gay and lesbian art, and foster those who create it. Its founders, Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman, began showing and collecting in their SoHo loft in 1969, and in 1987 created the Leslie Lohman Gay Art Foundation. The organization grew from a small gallery on Prince Street, to its current space at 26 Wooster Street. The museum’s permanent and study collections include more than 20,000 objects. About 70 of these are on display by artists like Peter Hujar and Ray Johnson, including photographs and collages, paintings, drawings and prints from the mid-20th century to 2013.
