This exhibition is the result of a long-term, ongoing project by LJ Roberts, consisting of 26 six-by-four-inch embroidered portraits of the artist’s friends, collaborators, and lovers within New York’s queer and trans communities. Stitched entirely by hand, these embroideries illustrate how politics, culture, and identity manifest in both visible and subtle ways in daily life.

 

LJ Roberts: Carry You With Me is organized by Pioneer Works, and curated by Gabriel Florenz. It is made possible through generous support from Pamela and David Hornik. It is also supported in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the New York Legislature.
The Cantor Arts Center presentation is organized by Elizabeth Kathleen Mitchell, PhD, former Deedee McMurtry Curator and Curatorial Fellowship Program Director. We gratefully acknowledge support from Pamela and David Hornik.
