Jon Davies: “Coming After” Publication

And yet here comes another product recommendation: “Coming After” was a group exhibition curated by Catch Fire contributor and film theorist Jon Davies, which was recently shown at Toronto’s Power Plant. It assembled works of contemporary artists born in 1970 or later which all in one way or another refer to the queer activism and identify politics of the 1980s and 90s in North America and the overshadowing HIV/AIDS crisis. To all of you who weren’t able to see the show I want to recommend the accompanying publication, which gives a great opportunity to discover the works and and approaches of 15 exciting contemporary queer artists such as Berlin based Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Dean Sameshima (see post below) or the duo Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz.
“Coming After: queer time, arriving too late and the spectre of the recent past” is introduced with a curatorial essay and illustrated by Canadian artist Logan MacDonald. It also features special artist projects by Ulrike Müller and Jimmy Robert, a transcribed speech by Sharon Hayes and a short text by Zoe Leonard.
You can order the publication via the Power Plant shop.
