Classical Nudes and the Making of Queer History, an exhibition curated by Dr. Jonathan Katz, closed yesterday after being on view at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Studies since October 17, 2014.  The exhibition focused on historical representations of the classical nude as expressions of same-sex desire.  The exhibition was recently reviewed in The Gay and Lesbian Review, a bimonthly magazine of history, culture, and politics.  Reviewer George Queral states:

  This is a must-see exhibition with a great catalogue that promises not to exhaust but to delight you and, if you are willing, to enlighten you about queer sensibility’s rightful place in the history of art.
