Opening for “Mariette Pathy Allen: Rites of Passage, 1978 - 2006” at The Museum of Sex

Opening for “Rites of Passage” Exhibition, on display at the Museum of Sex from March 28 - September 8

The selection largely highlights a time before the internet, when often hard-to-find newsletters and magazines were essential lifelines, and protests and in-person conferences were one of the few safe spaces to be ‘out.’ On display, you’ll find a record of Pathy Allen’s process before digital photography: darkroom work prints, photographs from color slides, hand-written notes, DIY programs for events—all records of a time far more limited, yet extremely passionate in the hope for a more equal future.
