This exhibition is the result of a long-term, ongoing project by LJ Roberts, consisting of 26 six-by-four-inch embroidered portraits of the artist’s friends, collaborators, and lovers within New York’s queer and trans communities. Stitched entirely by hand, these embroideries illustrate how politics, culture, and identity manifest in both visible and subtle ways in daily life.
