Opening Reception
Friday, September 6, 6:00 – 10:00pm

Gabriel Martinez’s show Bayside Revisited was the centerpiece of The Print Center’s Centennial exhibitions. In his upcoming exhibition at Marginal Utility (319 North 11th Street, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA) he continues his exploration of particular moments in queer history – here, the summer of 1981. Combining contact printing, mirror-ball photograms, solarization and other darkroom techniques, Martinez conjures various aspects of queer dualities: trauma/futurity, sorrow/ecstasy, fragmentation/regeneration, corporeal/celestial.
