Pride at the Whitney

FRI, Jun 15, 2018
7–9 pm

Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater

In collaboration with Discwoman, the Whitney Museum celebrates Pride and the LGBTQ community with a performance by artist NIC Kay. They will present about love, a performance that considers the Ru Paul quote, “If you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” about love is part of GET WELL SOON, a series of performances by Kay that asks how wellness can be defined outside of the neoliberal cultural economy.

Kay’s performance will be followed by a DJ set inspired by the Meatpacking District’s rich queer history and current exhibitions on view at the Museum, An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940–2017 and Zoe Leonard: Survey.
