ART EVENT #!

Will Munro:
Inside the solar temple of the cosmic leather daddy 
Munro’s exhibition Inside the Solar Temple of the Cosmic Leather Daddy combines several of the artist’s interests and obsessions. The spiritual iconography of ancient Egypt meets the Queer leather subculture of the 1970’s. Through worship and remembrance, Munro revisits the lives lost during the 1980’s AIDS epidemic, endows them with a sense of eternal life, and allows them to still be present among us. Spurred by his ongoing battle with terminal illness, he has submerged himself in the underworld of temples and glory holes, death and transformation, Kenneth Anger, Georges Bataille, Susan Sontag and King Tut. Runs until March 27th at Paul Petro Contemporary Art
