    Twenty Summers – Capturing Ptown | Quil Lemons Artist Talk
    Date: 2024-05-18     Time: 6 PM : 0 minutes

    Season Eleven Twenty Summers, rooted in Provincetown’s Hawthorne Barn, celebrates artistic freedom, offering resources, residencies, and a platform for originality and innovation, honoring its rich legacy.

    The audience of Twenty Summers can expect to see new photographs and drawings from Quil Lemons. During his stay at the residence, Lemons will be documenting the landscape of P-town which has served as a historical haven for the queer community. Simultaneously, Lemons will document some of the faces/figures that he finds interesting during his stay having them pose for portraits both on Polaroid and 35mm film.

    Quil Lemons is a New York-based photographer, originally hailing from Philadelphia. His visual language is distinct and interrogates ideas around masculinity, family, queerness, race, and beauty. Quil’s work dances the line between the fantastic and realistic, resulting in disruptive images that feel like pure imagination, while simultaneously grounding us in references to our current cultural climate. His images can be found in publications such as Allure, Garage, i-D, Shadowplay, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Variety, and W, among others. His clients include Burberry, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Guess, Gucci, Moncler, Nike, Nordstrom, SSense, and Valentino, among others.

    Quil has exhibited at International Center of Photography, New York, 2021, in Lincoln Center at the American Ballet Theatre’s Fall Season, New York, 2021, Aperture’s New Black Vanguard, New York, 2019, Kuumba Festival, Toronto, 2019, and Contact Festival, Toronto, 2018. He has given artist talks at Fotografiska in New York, and ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA. He launched a capsule collection with Sky High Farm Workwear titled “Farm Boys Do It Better” in February 2023 and is currently a Contributing Art Director at the brand.
