GLBT History Museum: A Picture Is a Word: The Posters of Rex Ray | Opening Reception
October 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A new exhibition at the GLBT History Museum surveys the graphic works of internationally renowned San Francisco queer artist and designer Rex Ray (1956 – 2015). “A Picture is a Word: The Posters of Rex Ray” features posters and book-cover designs reflecting the Bay Area music scene and LGBTQ publishing. Vibrant and subversively accessible, Ray’s art effortlessly mixes high and low culture, beauty and post-modern conceptualism.
Curators Cydney Payton and Amy Scholder draw attention to Ray’s signature graphics, first developed using a Mac Plus long before design applications changed the course of that art form. This distinctive digital style went on to influence the next generation of artists, clients in music and publishing, and their audiences.
The opening reception will feature brief remarks by the curators. Light refreshments will be served.
