Gay, Jewish, or Both at NAPOLEON


Gay, Jewish, or Both

A collaborative installation between designer Bernardo Margulis and NAPOLEON founding member Leslie Friedman

Stereotypes of any group often overlap and contradict themselves and Jewishness and queerness are no exception.  Artists Bernardo Margulis and Leslie Friedman open the doors of NAPOLEON onto an ambiguous dining room scene.  Through pattern, appropriation, and parody, Friedman and Margulis explore the complex social mannerisms through which modern Jewish and homosexual identities materialized as traces of each other.
