Pride at the Whitney

In collaboration with Discwoman, the Whitney Museum celebrates Pride and the LGBTQ community with a performance by artist NIC Kay. They will present about love, a performance that considers the Ru Paul quote, “If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” about love is part of GET WELL SOON, a series of performances by Kay that asks how wellness can be defined outside of the neoliberal cultural economy.

Kay’s performance will be complimented by a DJ set by Ziúr inspired by the Meatpacking District’s rich queer history and current exhibitions on view at the Museum, An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940–2017 and Zoe Leonard: Survey.
