“We Are Continually Exposed to the Flashbulb of Death”: AA Bronson, Robert Giard and Allen Ginsberg

The University of Toronto Art Centre’s fall program comprises three exhibitions concerned with photographic portraiture and its role in conjuring visibility of queer subjectivity and community. They encompass Allen Ginsberg’s photographic poetics, Robert Giard’s documentary project, and AA Bronson’s mirrored selfies and staging as shamanistic healer. Following on the heels of Toronto’s World Pride 2014, the exhibitions offer a glimpse of the revolutionary, homo-erotic poetics of visibility from the 1950s to the present.
