Close up of William // Drag Queens photographed by Martin Schoeller @Projekt 105 Gallery

An often misunderstood--though uniquely transitory--celebration of self-expression, drag culture has emerged from the shadows and become a revolutionized public performance art. Rounding out the last stretch of Pride Month, Martin Schoeller's Drag Queens at Projekt 105 Gallery in Tribeca showcases a palette of piquant portraiture featuring better and lesser known personalities. Having opened June 23rd, the exhibit is a work-in-progress and will run until September.

Set in the former Nobu Next Door space at 105 Hudson.

Neighbors and newcomers alike can enjoy the distinct photographic style of Martin Schoeller...and maybe a light bite or cocktail at a neighborhood haunt afterwards! If you visit, peek behind the curtain at the light installation in the back-- simple, but worthy of that "Aha" moment.
