LEZ CON -- Onya Hogan-Finlay's photographic exhibit at the CLGA January 20 - April 10, 2012




On Saturday December 10, 2011, Canadian artist Onya Hogan-Finlay hosted a photo shoot entitled 'LEZ CON' at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA). Hogan-Finlay's work aims to document all spectra of the rainbow from "haggard bull daggers, baby dykes, saucy queens, bossy bisexuals, telepathic transgenders, ambidextrous allies, leathery leather daddies young and old, interested intersex people, soft butches, closet cases, as well as staff, board members, volunteers and friends of the CLGA." The final print will be shown as part of an exhibition in the CLGA Gallery, January 20 - April 10, 2012. This exhibition is in conjunction with 'Coming After,' an international group exhibition on queer time, arriving too late and the spectre of the recent past, curated by Jon Davies at The Power Plant, Toronto, 10 December, 2011 - 4 March, 2012 http://www.thepowerplant.org.
