Advisory: Please note, some content in this video may not be suitable for all audiences.

In staged photographs of queer subjects in intimate, domestic settings, Levine questions the representation of traditional binary gender roles.

The exhibition JJ Levine: Queer Photographs invites you to discover the work of Montreal photographer JJ Levine via a selection of portraits drawn from three different series.

Composed of 52 large format photographs, including several that have never been exhibited, the compelling exhibition is complemented by a video illustrating the artist’s creative process. Actually a retrospective of Levine’s portraiture work that he began in 2006, it borrows from the studio portrait tradition to celebrate people who self-identify as queer.
