Michael Sharkey/Queer Kids

Exonian Portraits

Reception: Sunday, February 16, 6:30 pm

Michael Sharkey and students will discuss portraiture, representation, and queer visibility.

In the fall of 2017, the Lamont Gallery welcomed New York photographer and filmmaker Michael Sharkey to campus. His exhibition, Queer Kids, featured photographic portraits and interviews that are part of an ongoing project that documents LGBTQ teens in America and abroad. Sharkey's work celebrates the pride and power of his subjects, and reveals "the sheer joy of being able to stand up and be seen without shame.”

During his 2017 visit, Sharkey worked with a number of Phillips Exeter Academy students to create a series of portraits and collect interviews. This February, Sharkey will return to work with our students and share these portraits with our community.

Cosponsored by: Student Activities, Lamont Gallery, the Exeter Art Department, and the Class of 1945 Library. The Michael Sharkey Artist-in-Residence Visit is supported by the Tannenbaum Fund and other departmental contributions.
