Gabriel Martinez: Bayside Revisited

A dramatic, immersive, multi-media exhibition incorporating several major new commissions, Gabriel Martinez: Bayside Revisited reflects on the history of Fire Island as it figures in the history of gay culture. The works in Bayside Revisited incorporate a variety of print and photographic processes including a site-specific film installation. In his ongoing exploration of the issues surrounding the legacy of gay activism,  Martinez uses the printed image as a way to celebrate, memorialize and illuminate history, which echoes The Print Center’s approach to its Centennial.

Project support for Gabriel Martinez: Bayside Revisited is provided by the Edna W. Andrade Fund of the Philadelphia Foundation.
