Robert Giard’s Currents of Connection
Uncanny Effects displays the work of photographer Robert Giard, bringing forth connections made between LGBTQ+ cultural producers of the late 20th century. Works in the show detail Giard’s relationships across communities that grew through the photographic process. Uncanny Effects also emphasizes archival materials surrounding Giard and the people he photographed, providing context for his image-making and the lives he documented.
Beyond his best-known project, Particular Voices: Portraits of Gay and Lesbian Writers, this exhibition highlights the expansiveness of Giard’s photographic practice, from nudes to still lives and landscapes, as well as portraits of activists and artists.
Curated by Ariel Goldberg and Noam Parness.
