With ‘BlkQueer Romantics,’ The Tenth Magazine Makes Its Hudson Debut

Amy Krzanik reports from Hudson. Hudson Hall’s first exhibition of its 2018 season, The BlkQueer Romantics, is a collaboration with the creative team behind the magazine The Tenth, which recently relocated to Hudson. The biannual publication, which takes its name from the W.E.B DuBois essay “The Talented Tenth,” documents the history, culture, ideas and aesthetics of the black LGBTQ community.” The exhibition, The BlkQueer Romantics, takes its name from the most recent edition of the magazine (its fifth since launching in 2015) and both celebrate the landscape and architecture of the Hudson River Valley, featuring photo spreads taken at Hudson’s Dr. Oliver Bronson House and The Vanderbilt Mansion at Hyde Park, “places where many African American artists and entertainers escaped to at the turn of the 19th century.” The exhibit’s opening reception, on Saturday, Feb. 10, was attended by many of the issue’s featured writers and models. The BlkQueer Romantics is on view until March 18.  [Pictured above: Steven Lowe, Bruce Robinson, a model featured in The Tenth’s most recent issue, and the magazine’s co-founder Khary Septh]
