On View: April 27, 2019 - July 28, 2019
On June 28, 1969, a police raid of the gay bar Stonewall Inn in New York City, New York resulted in a revolt by its patrons. Their anger and frustration erupted into days and weeks of street protests that catalyzed cultural change as queer individuals realized their political power. Fed up with being persecuted for sexual and gender choices, queer communities and their allies began working both individually and in coalitions to advocate for self-determination, equality, and civil rights.Learn More

Steven Evans: If I can’t dance, it’s not my revolution!
On View: June 29, 2019 - October 14, 2019
In a career that has spanned more than three decades, artist Steven Evans has consistently explored the connections between music, language, memory, identity, and collectivity. CAMH’s solo exhibition with the artist – Steven Evans: If I can’t dance, it’s not my revolution! – includes two distinct bodies of work the artist has created in colored neon and adhesive vinyl that highlight links between popular music, activism, and social and political change. They demonstrate that the notion of “movement” is multivalent in Evans’s oeuvre; it is simultaneously individual and collective, physical and political. Taken together, the bodies of work on view in this exhibition communicate a sense of collective celebration and spirited resistance.Learn More
