Only three cities get to present the powerful “Art After Stonewall: 1969-1989” exhibition, and Miami is one of them. Opened September 14 at the Frost Art Museum FIU[1], the show serves as a visual history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement in the two decades that followed the Stonewall Riots, expressed through more than 200 pieces by artists including Andy Warhol[2], David Hockney, Diane Arbus, Keith Haring[3], Jean-Michel Basquiat, and many others. Two of the arts featured in the exhibition, Felix Gonzalez-T0rres and Martin Kreloff, once lived and created art in Miami; their work was instrumental in raising awareness about the AIDS crisis. The exhibition will headline Art Basel[4] in December—it runs through January 5.
