Lindsay Morris

You Are You documents an annual weekend summer camp for gender-nonconforming children and their families.This camp offers a temporary safe haven where children can freely express their interpretations of gender alongside their parents and siblings without feeling the need to look over their shoulders.

In 2007 Lindsay Morris started attending camp with a loved one. It was with a great deal of courage in 2012, that the camp parents and children agreed to have selected images published as the cover story of the New York Times Magazine. This started what we all agreed was a very important and timely dialogue in a public forum. Since then this story has been published in France, Italy, Germany, Israel, Australia and Eastern Europe, demonstrating a global interest in the predicament of gender-independent youth.

SFMOMA & MoAD Collaboration 

Portraits and Other Likenesses from SFMOMA
Museum of the African Diaspora, May 08 October 11, 2015
Organized in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), this exhibition explores how portraiture has evolved from a form of personal identification to a genre as invested in fiction, subversion, stereotype, and fantasy as it is in the description of physical traits. Featuring more than fifty artworks ranging in date from the early 1930s to our own time, Portraits and Other Likenesses from SFMOMA demonstrates how artists interested in issues of identity have negotiated a vast array of European, African, and American visual-cultural forms to redefine what it means to make a portrait. The carefully selected artworks — many exhibited for the first time as part of SFMOMA’s collection — encompass paintings, sculptures, photography, media art, and installation, including key pieces by Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Romare Bearden, David Hammons, Wifredo Lam, Glenn Ligon, Consuelo Kanaga, Nicole Miller, Chris Ofili, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Fred Wilson, among others.
