Based on Ganesh’s QueerPower public art installation for The Leslie Lohman Museum of Art in New York City, this book celebrates the queer and transgender histories of downtown Manhattan and the neighborhoods adjacent to the Museum’s Soho location. Ganesh transports the viewer into the past and beyond, including imagery drawn from researching architectures of 19th-century Black settlements Seneca Village and little Africa, as well as 17th-century Lenape settlements and structures that have since been destroyed or erased, alongside flora and fauna indigenous to NYC.
Includes essays by Erica Cardwell, Jeannine Tang, and Riya Lerner
