ArtNowNY is pleased to present Roughnecks and Drag Queens, a photography exhibition of photojournalist Kit Kittle’s work that explores and illustrates the extremes of American manhood and masculinity in the 1980s. The exhibition of 30 photographs juxtaposes two collections of Kittle's work: images from his 1989 book Roughnecks, portraits of industrial cowboys of the 1980s who manned oil riggers in the rural communities of Alaska, East Texas and Louisiana; and images from a currently unpublished collection of portraits of drag queens in Greenwich Village during the same time period. There will be an opening reception at ArtNowNY (548 W. 28th St, New York, NY 10001) from 6:00-9:00pm on June 26.
