'we lay in a bed of queen anne's lace...' Poster Print by Naima Green
- Shipping Information
TRNK Editions presents MIEN - a cross-section of queer artists of color who leverage portraiture photography to explore identity beyond visibility. 100% of proceeds will be donated to The Ali Forney Center.
Rather than presenting queerness as a cultural homology, these images take authorship over individual lived experience while acknowledging contributions to a representative body politic. Expressly, by bringing these diverse works in conversation with one another, this show makes legible the inherent tension between community and self.
Each work is presented as a limited-edition, 20"x30" poster ($75 Unframed, $250 Framed). 100% of proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Ali Forney Center to combat LGBTQ youth homelessness in NYC.
This poster is derived from a photograph titled 'we lay in a bed of queen anne's lace and I offer you twenty tons of honeysuckle clover' by Naima Green.
"In 2013, I was visiting a friend in Kent, CT on the land she grew up on. I began photographing Black artists one year prior for a series now called "Jewels from the Hinterland." Nedjra, Arvy, and I went on hikes, walked through this lush pasture, and spent the day in the pleasures of each other – making pictures, soaking up the sun, foraging and picking herbs to eat. There was deep peace on that day that I looking forward to reveling in again."
