From the Musée Magazine post concerning Peter Berlin’s exhibition at ClampArt:

Berlin’s photographic project is arguably closer to performance art, in that the act of cruising in his elaborate getups was the ultimate point of his ambitious pursuits. The expertly composed and printed photographs, gorgeous art objects in and of themselves, are ultimately records of his sexually pointed happenings.

As he grew older, Peter Berlin’s public cruising became less frequent, and now younger generations seem less aware of his large contribution to gay history. But, in 2005 Jim Tushinski directed and co-produced That Man: Peter Berlin, which helped spawn a resurgence of interest in and appreciation for Berlin’s work. “WANTED: Peter Berlin,” the exhibition at ClampArt, is mounted with the motivation to further support that comeback.
