Hayley Morgenstern and Creighton Baxter "It Might Get Better" The value of some aspects of historical gay identity-- deeply ideological though they may be--have been diminished or dismissed with successive waves of liberation. Central among these is the association between homosexual love and loss--a link that, historically, has given queers insight into love's failures and impossibilities (as well as, of course, wild hopes for its future). Claiming such an association rather than disavowing it, I see the art of losing as a particularly queer art. --Heather Love, Feeling Backwards: Loss and the Politics of Queer History Hayley Morgenstern and Creighton Baxter are transdisciplinary artists who are concerned with deconstructing/sexing the spectrums and constellations of identification within visual cultures; searching for the spectral histories and affective potentialities of queer performative languages that have yet to cum and are simultaneously already here.
