Male Gayz - 3D virtual exhibition by JOSEPH ABBATI

Male Gayz

Thu, 09/30/2021 to Fri, 12/31/2021

curated by:

“Male Gayz” looks at “the male gaze” from a queer perspective. It changes the toxic male narrative and provides a reconstructed point of view. The paintings here are appropriated from images Joseph has collected for years. They resemble prints with their flat thin matte finish.
Joseph Abbati’s work addresses concerns over visibility and body-positive celebration in the queer community. Abbati’s paintings focus on queer male pleasure, gaze, and desire. He is interested in the ways that social standards (on social media especially) pressure queer men themselves to fit into heteronormative expectations. His works act as an archive of the censored, but they are also just plain fun in their approach.
